One of the unique services that Denbigh Men’s Shed offers, is our range of Training Courses.

Informally titled ‘The 6 Pillars of Shed’ – our courses are designed to help develop and support our team  – and our members in growing and learning to live better lives.

These courses are not mandatory to Shed-members – but they are highly effective and informative – so we highly recommend you get involved when you come to join us. Everyone who signs up with us gets free access to these courses as part of their Denbigh Men’s Shed membership.

The aim is really to provide courses which enable us all to better understand and support each other – and to help new and diverse members as they come to join us – but it also includes all the knowledge and information we feel people might need in order to run a happy, sustainable and inclusive Shed-project, such as our’s.

The 6 Pillars of Shed course range includes :

  • POVA (Protection of Vulnerable Adults) / Safeguarding Training
  • Mental Health & Wellbeing Awareness Training
  • Social Isolation, Suicide & Self-harm Awareness Training
  • Personal Development Training
  • Equality & Diversity Training
  • Substance Misuse & Recovery Training




We aim to work with individuals to assess their needs and then co-create a suitable ‘Individual Personal  Development plan’, that shapes their journey as a learner and a member. This means our work is very much person-centered – and we aspire to constantly implement innovative ways to help people grow and achieve.

Some of the areas we are currently supporting people to grow in are :

  • Gardening / Garden Skills & Environmental skills
  • Mentor Training / Trainer Training
  • Essential Skills
  • Advocacy
  • Employability & Self Employment skills
  • Woodwork
  • Construction
  • Creative Projects


Other courses linked to some of our partner organisations will also be available in the coming months, so please follow our News and Events section for updates.

We look forward to meeting you, one day !
