One Community Working Together

Check out our Scotswood Men's Shed video.


Scotswood Men's Shed has been around for almost a year and the popularity is increasing every month. We hope this continues to give those who attend an opportunity to share their skills and ideas in a safe and friendly environment, and also a chance to let them get out and escape their everyday life for a few hours.




Check out the Silver Shantymen who came to our International Mens Day event.


Celebrating the success of men and the hard work they have put into society over the years we decided to host an International Men's Day which took part on Friday 18th November and was held at the Centre. During the event Newcastle College students came in to do barbering, face & hand massages and eyebrow threading. Our volunteer chefs were in the kitchen upstairs cooking up a buffet, we had Silver Shantymen (on the video) who sang great songs and kept everybody entertained. Open on that day was our Mens Shed and men also played darts, pool and traditional board games whilst meeting new and existing members.

Check out our Young Time Bankers video.


The Young Time Bankers are a group made up of children aged 8+ who live in Scotswood. Their aim is to make positive changes in the local area to benefit the people of Scotswood and make it a better place. The group is on every Monday 4-6pm, those children who attend earn Time Credits which they spend on trips, fun activities and courses they want to take part in.

So whats on for Men?


Social Tuesday: a social group to play pool, dominoes, darts and board games which runs every Tuesday 10am - 4pm.

Men's Shed: a carpentry, woodworking and DIY group for men only which runs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 1pm - 6pm

Lunch Club: social lunch group for the over 50s with a home cooked 2 course meal free to all members



Check out our JAM FINAL video.


Scotswood Centre workers ran a range of activities to engage young people in the west end of Newcastle, as part of the JAM project in 2015.

The Scotswood Centre worked in partnership with other organisations in Newcastle and it was funded through the local authority. Our open access sessions attracted a diverse group of talented youngsters.
