Over the past 12 months, projects of all shapes and sizes across the UK have been carrying out remarkable work to support their communities and improve lives.

From arts projects in Ayrshire to support groups in Somerset, our funding is being used to change the lives of millions of people of all ages, backgrounds and needs.

We are meeting local people who would like support in setting up their own Men’s Sheds and finding out the challenges we can support by those already in the process. This information will guide us to deliver the specific information required from our new website which is being developed also due to the award. Quality lives, living longer and helping this marginalised sector of our Scottish communities re-engage in purposeful activities within their communities are what we are achieving together.
