Inspirational Services Award 2019
A shed is part of the Australian culture. To address men’s retirement, or when downsizing to new homes the Australian Men’s Sheds Association has found a way to create an organisation to support this change. Men's Shed is a way to enable the maintenance of good health, feeling good about yourself, being productive, contributing to your community, connecting with friends and maintaining an active body and mind. Men's Sheds are doing a lot not only for their members, but also for their communities, genuinely helping schools, kindergartens, people less fortunate and having fun doing it, in a voluntary manner.
Driven by a vision of a world where everyone is accepted, valued, and respected, MyHorizon has grown to become one of Queensland’s leading disability services providers, empowering more than 2000 people to reach their potential each year, through Therapies, Community participation, Work and learning, Independent living and Support Coordination.
