Applications are open for grants to establish, expand or improve men’s sheds in Victoria.

Men’s sheds provide a place for people to get together, work on common projects and contribute to their community.

In the 2022-23 grant round, men’s shed groups could apply for a grant of up to $80,000 for the construction of a new shed or the extension or refurbishment of an existing shed.

“These grants will help men’s sheds grow and welcome new members, providing a place for people across our community to connect and supporting their wellbeing,” Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes said.

More than 360 communities have men’s sheds throughout Victoria.
