Uncle Tobys 2019 Great Grows Here Community Grants Program
Uncle Tobys 2019 Great Grows Here Community Grants Program Outcomes
In 2018, UNCLE TOBYS supported various initiatives including the amplification of the R U OK? message throughout the Riverina region, the facilitation of 156 Men’s health checks at Australia’s biggest agricultural event, Henty Field Day and, for the first time, the distribution of $14,000 in grants to fund six grassroots community projects. After such a great response to the grants program last year, the initiative was run again in 2019 to provide Men’s Shed’s with further resources for goodwill community projects.
The UNCLE TOBYS Great Grows Here Community Grants Program was open to AMSA member Men’s Sheds located in the Riverina (NSW) and Indigo Shire (Vic) and has now been finalised. Men’s Sheds were invited to lodge an Application if they were planning or currently working on a major community goodwill project.There was a variety of fabulous projects on offer and congratulations to all successful applicants.
The UNCLE TOBYS/AMSA partnership focuses on increasing awareness of Men’s Sheds and aims to address social inclusion and meaningful participation.
