Making a tangible difference

The Mower Shed

The Mower Shed, as a social enterprise, is a business with the social objective to provide employment and training opportunities to young people and adults in our local community who have found it more difficult to gain and maintain employment. Like any business, our aim is to make a profit, however, profit made is used to fund this, and other social programs, so we can continue to put our community first.

The Mower Shed is a social enterprise of UnitingCare Kippax and Canberra PCYC.

“I have been working for The Mower Shed for three years and it has really had a positive effect on my life. The people I work for and with are great. The Mower Shed really helps with getting young people work-ready and then helps them get a job. I can’t thank The Mower Shed enough for giving me a chance.” – Maree, The Mower Shed staff member
