Soldier On’s mission is to enable veterans and their families to thrive.
Our services aim to HELP individuals build resilience and create, and expand meaningful connections with family, community and employers through our Health and Wellbeing services, Employment programs, Learning opportunities, and Participation activities.
In order to achieve this mission, Soldier On has a team of amazing staff who dedicate their time to delivering services directly to serving those who have served, and their families. We have centres in the ACT, Concord NSW, Parkville VIC and offices in Perth WA, Adelaide SA, Brisbane QLD, Newcastle NSW, and Albury NSW. Our volunteer network and the generosity of the community allows for activities and events to be held across the nation and support many Defence personnel, contemporary veterans, and families outside of city areas.
The Soldier On Pathways Program is supported by funding from the Australian Government and Department of Veterans’ Affairs “Enhanced Employment Support for Veterans” Program.
SOLDIER ON’S SERVICES
At Soldier On, we continue to adapt to meet the needs of Defence personnel, contemporary veterans, and their families. This means providing services for the entire family, in areas that truly support connection with the greater community, whether participants are still serving or have separated from service.
Soldier On is focused on four key areas that have been outlined above. Whether our participants need to access services in one or all three areas, our staff are here to help them connect with others.
Defence personnel, contemporary veterans, and their families are welcome at any of our centres across the country and can engage with staff on the ground to find out more about our services. We can also provide some of our services remotely, via phone and online resources.
Health and Wellbeing – Soldier On provides in-house, evidence-based psychology treatments to Defence personnel, contemporary veterans, and their families, who have been impacted by their service to Australia.
Employment – Our dedicated Employment Officers provide one-on-one employment support to Defence personnel, contemporary veterans, and their family members via phone, email, Skype or face-to-face meetings at one of our centres.
Learning – Our incredible Education officers can assist with finding you the best course for your personal or professional development to Defence personnel, contemporary veterans, and their families.
Participation – Soldier On offers a range of social connection activities and programs to encourage Defence personnel, contemporary veterans, and their family members to reconnect with themselves and each other, and to build links with the wider community.
