Halton Haven - Men's Shed Project

Halton Haven is the first hospice in the country to have a men’s shed.

This innovative approach to meeting local need was sparked by research into the experience of bereaved men by clinical nurse specialist Pauline Hatchard.

Pauline’s work showed that bereaved men are very often not interested in the traditional family support offering of formal counselling or listening.  The data from the Family Support Team backed this up.

The Hospice researched the idea, originally from Australia, of creating a Men’s Shed where man could feel at home, work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace.  A place of leisure where men come together to work.  The relationships which men can build, in a way that is natural for them, can have huge health benefits and meet the unanswered needs which bereavement brings.
