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.

Recipients of this funding include:

  • The Corinella and District Men’s Shed and Woodies Group
  • The Leongatha Men’s Shed and
  • The Korumburra Men’s Shed, and
  • The 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.

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.
