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:

  • Human Performance Centre, which provides both prehabilitation and rehabilitation programs to maintain or return soldiers to peak physical and mental performance. 
  • Geckos Family Centre, which provides a place for Defence members, partners and families, to build friendships, socialise and access information to assist with the challenges of a Defence lifestyle.
The centre staff are familiar with the challenges for Defence members, partners and families due to the absence of members from home and the mobile lifestyle associated with Defence service.
RSL Queensland is the major supporting partner of this ground breaking initiative.
