"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," Mr 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."
"I encourage all Men's Sheds in the electorate to make a submission under this round of funding."
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 for the next round of Men's Sheds grants is open until 26 July 2021. Those wanting to apply can visit https://mensshed.org/development-grants.
