Simpson Barracks Visit-2019 @ DFFS Workshop
Oct 16 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

The Victorian based Programs Officer Rachel Byron will be visiting Simpson Barracks for the day. Rachel will provide a small presentation about Soldier On and the services that are available for defence personnel and their families.

There will be information packs/pamphlets participants can pick up as they wish, and she will happily conduct individual conversations that can go more in-depth with the participants and how we can tailor the program to meet their needs, and help them have a successful transition.

These sessions are open to current and ex-serving personnel and their immediate families.
