There are almost 1000 Men's Sheds across Australia and they do a great job. Ten of these are located right here in the seat of Monash. That's why I'm very pleased to announce that the government has awarded funding of $6,175 towards several Men's Sheds in our region.

Gippsland Men's Sheds will receive Federal Government funding to develop new programs and improve facilities for members

Funding recipients

Recipients of the men's sheds funding include:

  • Corinella and District Men's Shed and Woodies Group
  • Leongatha Men's Shed
  • Korumburra Men's Shed
  • Neerim District Community House and Men's Shed

This funding will allow these Men's Sheds to purchase new IT equipment and train their members so they can stay connected through modern media.

Opportunity for men and boys

Men's Sheds provide an opportunity for men and boys in our community to build connections and share their skills in a positive, welcoming environment. Their constant expansion and hard work is a testament to the support they provide for boys and men in our regions. That's Just as I see it.
