Funding for Men’s and Women’s Sheds

Applications are invited from eligible projects in Donegal for funding under the Community Enhancement Programme for Men’s and Women’s Sheds.


€28,796 has been allocated to Donegal LCDC by the Department of Rural & Community Development for small capital grants for Men’s and Women’s Sheds and applications for funding are currently being invited.


Men’s Sheds who are registered with the Irish Men’s Sheds Association are eligible to apply to the Programme. 


As there is no equivalent national affiliation for Women’s Sheds, the Department has set out eligibility criteria as follows:

  • There must be an appropriate organisational structure to the Shed.
  • The number of members of the group should be considered. If there are very few members then this should be considered along with their level of activity when deciding on eligibility.
  • The group should demonstrate that their ethos consistent with the ethos of the Men’s Shed movement.   Information on this is available on:
  • If the Women’s group are affiliated with another parent association (which means they are not really a Shed), then they should not be eligible for this fund.


Applications forms are available for download here or can be requested by emailing   [email protected], or calling 074 91 72 526.


The closing date for receipt of applications and required supporting documentation is 5pm on Thursday, 29th August 2019.
