We want you! Get support for social wellbeing and employment

If you are a veteran who is interested in getting support for your social wellbeing and/or employment, and you have not yet had liability accepted by DVA, you might be eligible for a program DVA is trialling.

Veterans who participate will be allocated a professional consultant who will develop an activity plan that aligns with their individual goals and needs in their civilian life.

The activity plan will last for three to six months and can include support funded by DVA to:

  • Build new social connections in your local community,
  • Become job-ready,
  • Change careers or adjust to the civilian workforce, and
  • Get a Medicare Card or engage a suitable GP.

The best part? You don’t need to have an accepted compensation claim with DVA to participate and there is no cost to take part.

The pilot aims to better support our veterans’ social wellbeing and employment needs in civilian life.

If this sounds like something you are interested in, send us an email for more information NLR [at] dva.gov.au.
