Dr MARJORIE O'NEILL (Coogee) (18:28): I recognise and appreciate the hard work of the Waverley Community Men's Shed. The Waverley Community Men's Shed is located at the War Memorial Hospital and is part of the Australian Men's Shed Association [AMSA], which is a community-based organisation whose primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly, and healing environment.
Members are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time, and in the company of others. The organisation's key focus is to advance the wellbeing and health of its members and to encourage social inclusion. The Men's Shed movement has now become one of the most powerful tools in addressing men's health and wellbeing. I recognise and thank those involved with the Waverley Community Men's Shed for the role that they play in providing such a positive environment for the men of the eastern suburbs.
