The Federal Government is providing funding for three Men’s Sheds in Gilmore to upgrade facilities and resources. The Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis yesterday contacted Tuross Head Men’s shed club President Leo Demchy to inform him of their $5000 grant allocation. “This will mean a lot to Men’s Shed members and the broader community, and I congratulate them on their success,” Mrs Sudmalis said. “The Tuross Head Men’s Shed helps men, particularly in their retirement years, to connect with each other and prevent social isolation and preventable health conditions. “This funding round helps Men’s Sheds buy tools and equipment, support community projects and training, maintain or develop their buildings, and create local activities to improve men’s health. “The funding will support men’s physical and mental health and wellbeing. “Men’s Sheds provide a sense of community, a safe and friendly environment where men can work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time, in the company of other men. “Members have an opportunity to pass their skills to others, learn new things, or just catch up regularly with other men in the community for a chat, a cup of tea and sometimes a BBQ,” Mrs Sudmalis said. This grant funding is part of the $5.1 million the Federal Government has provided to the Australian Men’s Shed Association through to 2018-19 to support the national network of Men’s sheds. Details of all successful grant recipients from this National Shed Development Program funding round are available at www.mensshed.org. Media Release
