As part of Men’s Health Week, the Federal Government is encouraging Men’s Sheds to apply for funding as part of the newest round of the National Men’s Shed Development Programme (NDSP).
“Men’s Sheds are a popular way for men to connect with their community—whether it’s through a building project, a first aid workshop or a transition to retirement seminar— that’s why I encourage our local blokes to give a shed a go,” Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor said.
“There are any number of activities for men to take part in, which in turn, provides that important sense of belonging to a community, particularly for older men and men living in rural and remote areas.”
Men’s Sheds can apply for financial support across the following funding categories:
- Category 1: Health, Wellbeing, and Events $8,000 maximum
- Category 2: Shed Improvements $8,000 maximum
- Category 3: Equipment $5,000 maximum
Applications are open until 26 July 2021 at https://mensshed.org/development-grants.
