About The Initiative

Ensuring Young Veterans and their

families have access to the support they need.

HOW THE PROJECT CAN HELP YOUNG VETERANS

Mapping out the needs of Young Veterans in Victoria.

The Young Veterans Project invites ex-servicemen and women who have served post-1991 to share their experience in transitioning to civilian life. Each story is a unique insight into the process of transitioning from the Defence Force, and provides a way for veterans to voice their opinion on the current state of the ex-service organisation sector which will lead to positive change.

By sharing their story veterans are assisting ex-service organisations in identifying service gaps and opportunities for collaboration within the state of Victoria. This is a vital step to ensure that the necessary services are made available to all young veterans and their families who may live in metropolitan, regional or rural areas.

WHY VETERANS SHOULD GET INVOLVED

Share your opinion on the ESO sector and help us ensure that every Young Veteran and their family has access to the services and the support they need.
