Veterans Sheds save lives - literally.

The aim of Veterans Sheds is to create and maintain an environment for veterans and ex-service personnel where concerns, past trauma, health issues and welfare issues can be discussed with other veterans who have empathy through similar life experience.

Funds will enable the expansion of the Shed program to other states, and to offer outreach and support to veterans.

An initiative of a Vietnam veteran, Barry Heffernan, there is a physical shed Shed and Memorial Garden at Kibby Reserve, on Kibby Avenue, Glenelg North, South Australia.

This is the first Veterans shed registered with the Australian Men’s Shed Association that is specifically intended for veterans of all conflicts, and anyone who served in the Australian uniform regardless of whether or not they saw operational service. The Shed has the support of the City of Holdfast Bay, who have given the William Kibby VC Veterans Men’s Shed Association Inc access to land on Kibby Reserve, Glenelg North (owned by the City), on which the Shed is built.

Funds raised for The Veterans Shed will go to, and be managed by, the William Kibby VC Veterans Men’s Shed Association Inc. which is a not for profit entity, staffed and managed by volunteers who have a military service background. This group will provide all of their own insurance including public liability and other relevant insurance policies.

This is an ongoing project, as the need for support from those suffering from PTSD either from operational service or abuse continues to grow.
