What is WASP

WASP is a free, voluntary program that can help you adjust to life after service.

It helps you access health care. It can connect you and your family with local services. You will also learn more about DVA support services and how to apply for them.

You will have your own DVA case manager and a community case worker to support you and your family. They will work together to help you develop wellbeing goals and work towards them.

You can take part in the program for up to 12 months. By the end of the program, we aim for you to be connected with local services in your community. If you need further assistance, we can arrange this.

Who can take part

We will consider any veteran who may benefit from the extra support the program provides.  

If you just need help returning to work, our rehabilitation support programs may be more suitable for you. You can go to our pages on Rehabilitation and Non-Liability Rehabilitation to find out more.
