Social Connection

Soldier On offers a range of social connection activities and programs to encourage service personnel and their family members to reconnect with themselves, each other and to build links with the wider community.

From our ‘Surf Therapy’ Program to coffee catch ups, yoga classes to creative writing workshops, these programs and activities have a range of purposes and benefits to meet the various needs of those we support.

These benefits include the formation of a network that provides support from the community, other service personnel and families and ultimately provides meaningful connections with others. It may also be a part of a physical or mental health treatment program. They can also be a lot of fun!

 

PROGRAMS

Serving On – Building resilience and connection through volunteer and/or community service.

A joint initiative between the Rotary Club of Sydney and Soldier On, Serving On provides former service personnel with the skills, opportunities, and support to continue to serve through purposeful work and impactful projects helping people and communities.  Through this program, Sydney Harbour Trust will have the option of engaging veteran volunteer support as speakers, tour and museum guides, red-coats, oral historians, and potentially other roles depending on individual skills and interests.

Family Ties – Strengthening inter-generational individual and family resilience through strengthened connections.

Funded by the Ian Potter Foundation, Soldier On’s Family Support Program strengthens family bonds and provides tools for getting and staying connected in the future.
