Supporting Men’s Sheds Around Hawthorn
I was delighted with the government’s recent announcement that $870 000 would be directed towards upgrading men’s sheds across Victoria. Under these grants, local men’s sheds can receive funding of up to $2,300, funding which will undoubtedly benefit the Hawthorn community.
Men’s Sheds are valuable to our community by providing safe and productive spaces for men to work on common projects and participate in their local community. The impacts of the pandemic have led many of them to struggle financially while unable to fund raise, amplifying the importance of government support.
Applications for the grants close on the 30th of November, and can be accessed via the DHHS here.
I was proud to speak further in support of this funding in a Member’s Statement in Parliament this past Wednesday, the 14th of October 2020.
