A Department of Health and Human Services message for Victorian Men’s Sheds
Department of Health and Human Services
Men’s Sheds across Victoria are advised to remain closed at this stage. In the meantime, Sheds can develop a Covid Safe Plan https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/covidsafe-plan to enable them to open safely when the time comes.
Victorian Sheds are also encouraged to apply for a grant to assist with bills or re-opening expenses. Through the 2020 Men’s Shed Funding Program – Support for Men’s Sheds, payments of $2,300 are available to assist men’s sheds to meet their most urgent expenses, so that shedders can sustainably reopen as strong and connected community organisations when Victoria’s restrictions ease.
Applications close 30 November 2020.
