Human Performance Framework

A high level of physical and mental resilience is needed for Defence personnel to reach their full potential both during and after service.

Recognising this, 3rd Brigade introduced the Human Performance Framework. The Framework is designed to enhance the resilience of its soldiers and their families through two aligned centres:

  • Vasey Resilience Centre, which provides both prehabilitation and rehabilitation programs to maintain or return soldiers to peak physical and mental performance
  • Geckos Family Welfare Centre, which provides welfare, employment and community services for Defence families, recognising that soldiers’ resilience is dependent on strong family support.
The Human Performance Framework is an initiative of 3rd Brigade, based at Lavarack Barracks in Townsville.
RSL Queensland is the major supporting partner of this ground breaking initiative.
