DVA’s on-base Veteran Support Officers

Veteran Support Officers (VSOs) support ADF personnel on some 56 Defence bases across Australia.  

23 October 2020

Our support model provides three levels of support, as required by individual circumstances, to better support current serving veterans and their families. The model is premised on a strong working relationship with all levels of Defence and the broader veteran community.

Reach out to a VSO if you:

  • are medically or administratively separating from the ADF
  • have been medically downgraded at any time
  • have an Australian Defence Force Rehabilitation Program Rehabilitation Consultant assisting you, or 
  • have suffered an injury or illness related to your service.

Current serving ADF members can book an appointment with an on-base VSO by emailing vso [at] dva.gov.au or ringing 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372).
