The Shed provides support to men whom we consider to be at risk of serious stress and suicide, generally on account of cumulative stress often due to disadvantaged situations. Most of these men are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander origin since these are often the men most at risk.
Jumna Wal aims to become a place where the stories and experiences of Aboriginal men on parole can be shared and collated. It is designed as a safe, welcoming place where these men can feel comfortable and welcomed - a place where Aboriginal men just out of prison can reconnect with society
