Walkinstown Sister Shed
Bringing women together in a safe environment to make friends, support each other and learn from each other’s experience.
Sister Sheds are being set up to provide a service to communities around Ireland. Bringing women together in a safe environment to make friends, support each other and learn from each other’s experience. We aim to diminish isolation and loneliness, to provide a safe place to talk with no judgement or prejudice.
What we offer varies on the requirements of the woman in each shed and no two groups are the same. We provide mindfulness, life coaching, personal development, prevention before cure for mental health support. We encourage self-awareness and build confidence in members, many of whom have gone through some sort of trauma in their lives.
We organise courses, activities (both indoor and outdoor) and excursions through which we hope to join the communities between sheds to grow the sisterhood even more.
The Walkinstown Sister Shed was set up in July 2022 and has been growing ever since. There was a lot of interest from local women in the community. We meet every Thursday evening in The Green Kitchen.
Joining Sister Shed was honestly one of the best things I have ever done. Friendships and support are forming between ladies in the community and it really is fantastic.
