This section provides information on DVA’s work with the ex-service organisation (ESO) community relating to the National Consultation Framework and the forums that form the framework.
National Consultation Framework
Working with the ex-service community is an important objective of the Department and Government.
The National Consultation Framework is a formal consultative structure designed to facilitate effective communication between the veteran and ex-service community, the Repatriation and Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Commissions, and the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA).
The National Consultation Framework comprises national and State and Territory Forums. More information on each of the forums, including membership and the Terms of Reference, can be found through the links on the menu to the left. Special interest groups or industry specific groups required to address particular needs may be formed to complement the framework.
