Veterans bushwalking together

Wellbeing Services

Sometimes you know you need help, but you don’t know what you need or even how to begin. 

If you’re struggling and don’t know where to turn, our Wellbeing Officers can be a guiding light. They will meet with you to talk about the challenges you’re facing, and then work with you to develop an action plan that you can work through at your own pace.

In doing so, they may refer you to a range of services – from emergency accommodation to financial counselling to employment support – or help you connect with others who know what you’re going through.

And they will be at your side all the way, helping you keep on track.

“I’ve just been alongside her to maybe just light the path a little bit for her.” – Xanthe, Veteran Services Officer – Wellbeing
