Ladywood Share Shack
Coronavirus update: Whilst we cannot offer activities in the Share Shack due to lockdown restrictions, you can join and view the library, and borrow or return items at the shop during the opening times below. All items are cleaned and quarantined after each use, find out more about our current service and how we are keeping everyone safe when borrowing from us here.
Ladywood Share Shack is the first of a series of community spaces for residents to connect with each other by borrowing, repairing, re-using and being creative!
Share Shacks aim to strengthen relationships in communities, reduce waste, encourage people to share skills, borrow free tools and equipment, and learn something new. Working together with our neighbours to create a sharing economy that everyone benefits from. We welcome ideas from the community for new items to stock and activities to deliver at the Share Shack space in future.
This Share Shack is run in partnership with Eat Make Play, a Community Benefit Society based in the Ladywood area.
Ladywood Share Shack is for everyone and anyone. It’s a space for residents to connect with each other and everyone is welcome, so come and get involved!
Share Shack is your space, run for the benefit of the community, by local people. We know there is a wealth of talent, skill and enthusiasm in our community and we’d like to invite you to share this with your friends and neighbours.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the project in lots of ways, meeting and greeting customers, running activities, sharing a skill or helping us out with admin and promotion. Get in touch if you’d like to join the team – [email protected] Please note, during lockdown we are only operating a click and collect service, but we would love to hear from you about getting involved in future.
If you have items you’d like to donate, please get in touch initially – we can’t accept some items for safety reasons and lack of space, so please don’t bring items down to the shop without checking first!
