Supporting our veterans and community


Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, today announced the York Men’s Shed has been successful in receiving funding under the latest round of Veteran and Community Grants.

Mr Porter extended his congratulations to the York Men’s Shed, who will receive a grant of $1,999 for the purchase an electrical safety tag, test and recording system.

“The York Men’s Shed is committed to improving the lives of those who have served and sacrificed for our nation in practical and tangible ways,” Mr Porter said.

“The grant will certainly go a long way to assisting the Shed to continue their work and enriching the lives of veterans and their families, by providing improved facilities and enhanced services.”

Ex-service and community organisations, veteran groups and private organisations that contribute to the health and welfare of the veteran community are encouraged to apply for funding through the  Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ Veteran and Community Grants program.

“Our Government is putting veterans and their families first, providing more than $11.2 billion each year to deliver the essential services and programs they can rely on,” Mr Porter said.

“I encourage ex-service and community organisations, veteran representative groups and private organisations to apply for funding to support projects that promote improved independence and quality of life for veterans through the Veteran and Community Grants program.”

Veteran and Community Grants are now available through the Australian Government’s Community Grants Hub.
