The Shed's free binder programme   

New binders

We have a small amount of funding to provide new binders for people who are unable to afford their own. 

  • Due to our limited funding, our program is only for people who live in Victoria, Australia. 

  • We are limited to 10 orders per month. We will use a lottery system if we cannot help everyone who applies.

  • We order from GC2B because they are a trans-owned and operated business producing quality binders with great reviews.


If you need a binder, but the GC2B binders are not suitable for you, please email us at and tell us why. We want to be able to support you in the future.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will be given priority. 

Second hand binders

Our second hand binders (including post surgical binders) are free, and are available based on the donations we receive.  You can take a binder if you need one, or swap yours for another one.


Email us at with the size you need and we'll let you know what we've got in stock. 


We rely on donations to keep the programme running. 


If you have a binder to donate, you can post it to FTM Shed, 100 Drummond Street, Carlton 3053.  You can also email us at to see if you can drop it off somewhere convenient, to save on postage. 

You can also donate directly.  Even if you're only able to make a small contribution, every dollar counts. The more donations we receive, the more people we can help by offsetting the cost of each binder, which is around $60-90.

We at The Shed acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we meet and organise, the Wurundjeri People of The Kulin Nation. We recognise their strength and resilience and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We also pay our respects to the Indigenous members of The Shed, and any First Nations people who may be reading this. Sovereignty was never ceded.
