Shed Life is a resident-led project, they believe that everyone has the right to live a life that allows them to get on with life; good health, independence, friendship, enjoyable social activities and new experiences. They deliver projects that bring people together, specifically residents who are experiencing isolation and loneliness.

Shed INC (Inclusive) is a new peer support art project, funded by the Barking and Dagenham Community Chest, to deliver a creative, peer support group, for residents experiencing complex health conditions, waiting for treatment or managing a life changing diagnosis. The sessions will be a chance to talk, to help each other, to exchange and share experiences, to provide an enjoyable distraction, a friendly peer support network and opportunity to empower self-advocacy and take positive action to improve individual health outcomes and recovery.
