A New Generation Veteran Support Network

Maintaining our Heritage


To support the transition, health and wellbeing of all veterans and their families so that they feel valued and can attain stability in life after service.


Note: The APPVA definition of veteran includes ADF veterans, first responders who have deployed on peacekeeping operations or were formerly ADF, and any civilian who has deployed on peacekeeping or peacemaking operations such as DFAT members, the Australian Electoral Commission and civilian peace monitors.

Our Core Values


To engage with like minded veterans and veteran community organistions because together we can pool our resources and give a greater representation of veterans to the Commonwealth.


To respect the contributions made by participants in modern operations and demonstrate this by appointing younger veterans to representational positions and giving them ownership.


To connect all stakeholders through services that are purpose built to give professional represent all who do not feel they have a voice locally or nationally, and to disseminate issues and information.

Our Point of Difference

We believe that the veteran community deserves a unified voice to bring about positive change because the ways of the past are now irrelevant.

We provide all members of the veteran and veteran family community with a single trusted source of truth.  We take your concerns, unfiltered, to the Commonwealth, and we represent you.

Our unwavering commitment is to ensure that no veteran or their family feels underrepresented or isolated

Our National Network

We are one element of a national network, with each component having its subject matter expertise.

This allows each of us to support each other and provide optimised services to veterans and their families as well as the wider veteran support network.  We have preferred medical partners who react rapidly to a need and must meet a minimum standard.

Most importantly, all veteran organisations are welcome with the only condition being to demonstrate a defined standard of governance and we will help you through it.

We are all part of the one Community and each organisation keeps its Identity


Our Community consists of veteran and veteran family members, carers, and the organisations that care for us all.  How to become an Affiliate Member is described below.
