Noosa Women’s Shed President, Robyn Sanders.

Unitywater has lent its support to the Noosa Women’s Shed by providing them with land they can call home and a $5,000 grant, in a similar land leasing agreement and occupation of unused Unitywater buildings that helped the Noosa Men’s Shed to get up and running back in 2014.

Noosa Women’s Shed President, Robyn Sanders, welcomed the recent support and what it means for the community and the challenges increasingly faced by women, saying the offer will mean so much.

“Unitywater has very generously given us a deed of licence to a piece of land, which will see us get our own shed,” Ms Sanders said.

“We’re hoping to have a multi-purpose shed we can finally call home and a base for our members.

“We’re about empowering women with tool-based skills, helping them stay independent and not isolated, and being able to fix things around the home. It’s also about connection and having somewhere to go that’s safe.”

Unitywater has a long and rewarding association with Men’s Sheds in its service region, having previously supported Sheds in Maroochydore, Coolum, Noosa, Pomona and Deception Bay.

Unitywater Executive Manager Customer and Community, Katherine Gee, said this was another great opportunity to support a worthy community organisation.

“At Unitywater, we want to support the communities where we live and work by keeping them healthy,” Ms Gee said.

“One of the key areas we are passionate about is mental health and wellbeing. When people need that contact and are craving a network, these groups are incredibly supportive and helpful.

“In addition to the land we are providing, Noosa Women’s Shed is receiving a $5000 Unitywater community grant to get them up and running. We’re really looking forward to seeing them grow so they can continue to educate, connect and empower women.

“Our grants program is about supporting social and nature-based initiatives that keep communities healthy and make a real impact in our region.”
