$1.5 million to build new Menís Sheds
Communities across Victoria can now apply for grants of up to $60,000 to build new Men’s Sheds.
Minister for Community Services Mary Wooldridge announced that $1.5 million is available to build up to 25 new sheds through the latest round of funding from the Victorian Government’s Strengthening Men’s Sheds Program.
Men’s Sheds enable men to participate in their community by providing a place to meet, talk, get involved in their local community and learn about men’s health and wellbeing.
Applicants must make contact with the Department of Human Services Local Connections Team in their area to discuss their application. It is strongly recommended that all applicants also seek advice from the Victorian Men’s Shed Association.
Applications close on 6 September 2013.
