Peter Mac Men's Shed
Treating the disease is one aspect of cancer care. The Peter Mac Men’s Shed is the first shed in a Victorian hospital offering men an opportunity to meet other men undergoing, or caring for someone receiving medical treatment. The Peter Mac Men’s Shed aims to reduce social isolation, improve wellbeing and provide an environment where men can share experiences and be supported. Mending Casts is proud to be an official referral service to this wonderful program.
