Mens Shed
Men's Shed Cymru

It’s all about wellbeing. As a gender, men do not tend to form the same support networks and groups as women, and traditionally men in Wales have talked and socialised at the local pub, or during sports activities. Life presents many challenges; retirement, unemployment, physical or mental ill health – men can often find themselves with time on their hands, become socially isolated or lonely. Men’s Sheds Cymru offers a ‘health by stealth’ approach, encouraging friendships, community and service networks through the formation and support for a men’s shed. The inclusive ethos we promote offers ‘Shedders’ a sense of belonging, acceptance and fellowship experienced ‘shoulder to shoulder’ through shared activities.  Mike Timewell,  as Chairman of Llangadog, Llandeilo & Llandovery Men’s Shed has now taken over editing the Mens Sheds Cymru Newsletter for all of Wales, the latest edition can be found here.  To visit their website, please click here.

With the easing of Coronavirus restrictions in Wales from Friday 30th April Mind Caerfyrddin will be able to facilitate outdoor activities for group service users. 

From the week commencing 3rd May we will be able to facilitate indoor activities for up to 15 adults.  The first day that this would apply in Llandovery would be Friday 7th May, 2021.

Also, from next week we will become an open drop-in centre, i.e. people will no longer have to book appointments to come and see us, they will now be able to just call in between 1pm-4pm.  However, specific appointments can still be made for 1-1 sessions should anyone want one.

More details of meetings with Mind within Carmarthenshire can be found in Welsh here. If you would like to view this in English please click here

Wellbeing Walks are now being organised in your local area.  

The group walks are led by friendly, trained volunteers who are on hand to provide encouragement and support, and make sure no one gets left behind.

The walks are short and over easy terrain. They are open to everyone, but are especially aimed at those who are least active.  With all of the physical and mental health benefits associated with walking, now seems a great time to see when your nearest walk is taking place.  Click here for more information.  Please note due to Covid-19 restrictions you must register online prior to the meeting.
