The health and well-being of current and former ADF & Emergency Services members, and their families, drives everything we do at Defence Shed Wagga Wagga (DSWW).
We host a range of activities including accredited courses like welding, barista, first aid and IT, hands-on hobbies like woodwork, gardening and cooking, plus coffee catch-ups, fishing and camping activities, and much more where our DSWW community can socialise with like-minded people. We’re very excited about our new high-level capability in laser cutting and 3D printing!
DSWW membership is open to all including family, friends and supporters. Most courses, workshops and activities are FREE for our members. Contact us today or go ahead and Join! 👉Secure online Membership Form
DSWW works closely with TAFE NSW and other training organisations to deliver a range of training and courses for members to utilise in the shed and beyond.
DSWW provides members with skills-based workshops and coordinates a variety of certified TAFE courses throughout the year (including certificates in welding, computer aided design, hospitality, first aid and others).
Getting together with like-minded people is also important, so there’s a range of regular group activities through the year: fishing days, coffee mornings, getting off the beaten track through our beautiful region, BBQs etc. These activities are all family-friendly.
Defence Shed Wagga Wagga (DSWW) is part of the Australian Defence and Emergency Services Shed Association and has been operating since mid-2019.
DSWW is a Not-For-Profit Charity dedicated to providing support and services to current and former Australian Defence Force and Emergency Services personnel and their families, and part of the growing Defence and Emergency Services Sheds community – based on the highly successful Men’s Shed model, but we are open to men, women, families, friends and supporters of ADF and Emergency Services personnel.
Providing crucial support services, networking, education, pathway employment and advocacy to improve the health and wellbeing for our members and their families drives everything we do.
DSWW helps fill the gaps by offering a community workshop space where members can learn and develop useful skills for hobbies or employment. We also host a range of social activities ranging from coffee catch-ups to fishing and camping activities so members and their families can socialise with like-minded people. We understand the importance of peer support.View More
