Participate and connect

Our activities encourage veterans and their families to reconnect with themselves, each other, and to build links with the wider community.

Being part of a community and having a close circle of friends are integral to leading a happy and healthy life. Soldier On’s Participate and Connect activities will help you and your family build a strong support network in the civilian world.   

Our free sporting activities, social events, coffee catchups, sailing days, art or yoga classes – even a ‘Surf Therapy’ program – enable you and your family to reconnect with each other and make lasting friendships outside the ADF. 

Kids’ activities and special-interest events ranging from photography to axe throwing, provide an exciting calendar of happenings for the whole family to look forward to. 

Our national program, Vet Connect, brings together veterans and their families for residential weekends to re-establish a sense of mateship. 

"I can't thank you enough for the amazing opportunity that yourself and your team gave my family. It came at the perfect time for us as a family. With myself in and out of mental health hospital facilities for the last four to five months. The family enjoyed every minute of it and we made the most of the two days and created some unforgettable memories."
