Welcome to the AMSA

Established in 2007 by the Australian independent community based Men's Sheds to represent, support and promote the Mens Shed Movement and to act as a central hub for information exchange. The Australian Mens Shed Association is funded by the Federal Government to provide initial and ongoing practical support for the development of all Mens Sheds.

The Australian Mens Shed Association is a member based organisation founded on the principle of sharing information  between Sheds and those communities and organisations wishing to establish a Shed.

 AMSA services are provided  to registered  sheds, Membership to the Association is  for all services excluding membership that includes our discounted Group Public Liability Insurance Scheme.     

AMSA is a charitable not-for-profit association and is registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient. AMSA is the peak body representing Mens Sheds in Australia providing practical support and assistance. With over 1000 Mens Sheds registered AMSA is now the largest Association in Australia focussed on male health and well-being.
