Female Veterans and Families Forum
The inaugural Female Veterans and Families Forum (FVFF) was held in Canberra on the 5th and 6th of December 2016 and attended by female veterans and representatives from veteran and family groups. This Forum was established to provide a platform for female veterans and veteran family members to raise issues directly with the Government and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), and create new channels of communication between DVA and the veteran community. The Forum gave participants the opportunity to discuss the unique experience of female veterans and the impact of service on them and their families. The report from this first Forum is below. The next Forum will be held later in 2017.
