Binder programme - currently on pause
Our binder programme is currently not taking applications - except for enquiries made through a support officer, or requests for post op binders.
Online applications for binders are paused for now
We've had huge demand and we are busy processing the applications we currently have. We will reopen online applications as soon as we can. If you are a support officer (for example, housing support, mental health worker, or domestic violence support) and you want to apply on behalf of a client, please email us at email@example.com. Please be aware that everyone at The Shed is a volunteer and we reply to emails as soon as we can.
Post op binders are still available
If you need a post op binder, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our post-op binders are for anyone who has top surgery booked (no other eligibility requirements). An extra binder is handy during recovery! We have them in sizes S, M and L.
Binders in other states
If you need a binder and you're outside of Victoria, please check out your local trans support group or organisation and ask what support they have available:
South Australia - TransmascSA
Western Australia - Trans Folk of WA
Queensland and northern NSW - Many Genders, One Voice
Northern Territory - The Northern Territory AIDS and Hepatitis Council (NTAHC)
NSW - The Gender Centre
Tasmania - Working it out

Volunteer with us
The programme is currently run by 3 volunteers and we need more help to keep the programme running. We'd love to have more peeps join team binder and help us keep running this awesome programme.
Support us to keep running!
Our online shop helps us to keep running our peer support and binder programme by subsidising our running costs. We sell Mr Limpy and some great pride merch!
We are currently supported by community grants from Pride Foundation Australia, and GLOBE Victoria.
