NEWCASTLE Men's Shed is looking for a new home for the third time in less than five years.
The not-for-profit organisation has been given until the end of August to leave its base at Hamilton North.
It is seeking space of about 250 to 300 square metres in an inner-city suburb of Newcastle.
While it can afford to pay a small amount of rent, it hopes to create a partnership arrangement or collaborative working relationship with a property owner.
Newcastle Men's Shed publicity officer Paul Schiebaan said that the group was on a desperate hunt to find another new home over the next two months.
"The shed not only plays an important role in the overall improvement of health and well-being of our 80 plus members but also by positively engaging with the local community," he said.
"Our location within Newcastle is important. More and more men are moving into smaller homes and apartments, so the need to share a shed is really important.
Mr Schiebaan said the shed's members worked on a range of projects and assisted many community initiatives and charities.
"The shed is an important place for men," he said.
"We enable men of all ages to socialise and participate in activities in practical ways that encourage the development of good health, self-esteem and support for each other and the community in general.
"Our aim is to improve the health and well-being of members and reduce the number of men who are at risk from preventable health issues that may emanate from isolation."
Newcastle Men's Shed was launched in 2015 and initially operated out of the old BHP admin building in Mayfield East.
When the building was sold by the state government a year later, the group was temporarily based in Waratah before it moved to its existing site in Hamitlon North.
