The Victorian Men’s Shed Association is the first organisation in the world to represent sheds.

It was established in September 2007 to represent the independent community-based Men’s Sheds in Victoria.

The purposes of the Association are:

  • To foster the development and sustainability of Men’s Sheds in Victoria.
  • To advocate on behalf of Sheds to government, private, and community sector organisations.
  • To provide opportunities for bringing Sheds together to share and learn.

The VMSA has seen the number of Sheds in Victoria increase from 38 in 2007 to in excess of 350.
