NEW MEN’S SHED SET FOR ENDEAVOUR HILLS
More men in Endeavour Hills will be building new friendships, skills and community connections, thanks to a Victorian Government grant for a new men’s shed.
Member for Dandenong, Gabrielle Williams, and Member for Narre Warren North, Luke Donnellan, today announced the Endeavour Hills Men’s Shed would receive $80,000 towards their much needed new shed.
The grant will be used to erect a new building which will be used for the health, social, workshop and other activities and programs of the Endeavour Hills Men’s Shed.
Across Victoria, new men’s sheds will be constructed in eight communities, while 15 other sheds will be refurbished across Victoria, thanks to $879,000 in grants from the Victorian Government.
Men’s sheds are safe and productive spaces for men to work on common projects, and actively participate in their local community.
They also help improve the health and wellbeing of participants by promoting social inclusion.
There are more than 1,000 sheds across the country, with over 360 in Victoria.
The Victorian Government is a proud supporter of men’s sheds and recognises the important role they play in bringing the community together.
