As part of the Scottish Government's winter package funding to tackle social isolation and loneliness, the SMSA has secured vital funds to support Men's Sheds in crisis in Scotland. The £30,000 emergency pot will assist Sheds, most severely affected by the pandemic, that are struggling with financial pressures and/or facing closure to ensure they are still here to support Shedders when they are able to open safely once again.
 
The fund is now open for SMSA Shed Members (Not a member? Click here to join for free) to apply online through the Association.  Sheds can apply for core running costs (e.g. rent, heat and light, insurance etc) to keep them open in the upcoming months.  Priority will be made to Sheds with an unrestricted funds bank balance of less than £1,000. SMSA will start to release funds to successful applicants in January 2021.
 
If you have any queries, please contact Jason Schroeder, SMSA Executive Officer.
