The Morrison Federal Government is continuing to support the health and wellbeing of men in Barker through funding grants under the 20th funding round of the National Shed Development Programme.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin welcomed the funding, that includes $6,844 for the Southern Barossa Men’s Shed.

Mr Pasin visited the shed and met with members today.

“Now more than ever, Sheds offer men a critical avenue for social support and engagement”

“To stay healthy, we need to do regular activities with the people around us, and our local men’s sheds have become a really important part of so many communities in Barker.”

“The Government remains committed to supporting men’s sheds and encouraging men to meet up and get involved with meaningful community projects.” Mr Pasin said.


In this case, the Southern Barossa Men’s Shed has received $6,844 for safety signage, chemical storage cabinet, PPE, tactile floor indicator, tactile signage, two wall grab rails, modular kitchen and a continuous flow hot water system. The funding will also buy a new 36″ T glide rail Sawstop, and some raised garden beds.

Since 2013, the Government has provided $5.4 million through the National Shed Development programme to support men’s sheds across Australia.
