Sheds Grant Fund

Royal Voluntary Service, with funding from the Asda Foundation, has established a Sheds Grant Fund to provide small scale funding to Sheds who are looking for help with either set up or early stage development costs.

Sheds are community spaces where people can come together to take part in practical skills and activities. Sometimes called Men’s Sheds or Community Sheds, they are designed and run by their members and provide opportunities for people to share tools, resources and skills in order to create, learn and develop social networks.Shed activities often involve traditional crafts such as joinery, furniture renovation, metal work and mechanics, but each Shed meets the interests of its members and therefore may also include a broad range of activities such as gardening, model making, photography or baking.
