Support for Men

Campbelltown City Council is committed to improving men's knowledge, rights and access to services on issues such as healthy relationships, finances, education and health.

Our Community Development team aims to provide support for activities and events which encourage all men - young, mature, with a disability or culturally diverse, to participate and be connected to the community.

Facts/Statistics

Men’s Sheds

Council provides support and assistance in the development of Men’s Sheds in the local area.

Men’s Sheds are for all men from the local community who wish to join. They provide a place where you can feel included and safe to work on meaningful projects at your own pace, in your own time, in the company of other men.

Men's Sheds may do a variety of activities from manual crafts to gardening and beekeeping. Some may undertake community projects such as making toys for local childcare groups. They provide opportunities to learn new skills, attend health and wellbeing events and an opportunity to make friends.

Men’s Health Week 12 to 18 June 2023

Men's Health Week empowers individuals and local communities to engage with men and boys in healthy living through fun, family and events!

Mental Health Month - October

Mental Health Month is a time to think about our mental Health and wellbeing, regardless of whether we may have experienced it or not. NSW is part of a national mental health promotion campaign held throughout October each year. The timing of the campaign centres on World Mental Health Day, which is marked each year on 10 October.

White Ribbon

White Ribbon Day is an annual event held on 25 November, the international day for the elimination of violence against women. It is an event campaigned by men since 1999 to end violence against women, their non-violence being symbolised through wearing a white ribbon.
