Late in 2021 AMSA was successful in securing funding from the Australian Government Department of Health to provide increased support to Men’s Sheds as part of the regional coordinator initiative.
This initiative is a project of the Federal Government Department of Health to provide $1.5 million over 3 years (from 2021–22) for regional coordinators to provide grassroots support to Men’s Sheds around the country. Read more about the initiative.
Regional coordinators will help men’s sheds to connect with local health services, and promote health events aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of men’s sheds members across the country.
Our Shed Support will also include:
- Assisting Men’s Sheds organise Shed and health events and initiatives
- Connecting Men’s Sheds with AMSA resources, events and initatives
- Assisting Men’s Sheds with grants and funding enquiries and applications, including the Australian Government Department of Health National Shed Development Programme
