ORGANISATION SELECTED TO DEVELOP SOUTHEAST QUEENSLAND VETERANS’ AND FAMILIES’ HUB
The next Veterans’ and Families’ Hub is set to be established in Caboolture, Southeast Queensland, with health and wellbeing organisation Lives Lived Well announced today to lead the Hub’s development.
Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Defence Personnel Matt Keogh said the Australian Government is delivering on its commitment to provide more localised support to Southeast Queensland’s defence and veteran communities.
“I am pleased to announce that Lives Lived Well will establish the Southeast Queensland Veterans’ and Families’ Hub, bringing a new perspective to supporting veterans and families,” Minister Keogh said.
“For over 40 years Lives Lived Well have provided health and wellbeing support in Queensland and New South Wales, with extensive experience in working with individuals and families needing physical and mental health services and support with social connections.
“This experience, and through working with the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia (Queensland Branch) and Australian War Widows Queensland, places them in a great position to lead the Southeast Queensland Hub.”
Veterans’ and Families’ Hubs provide a one-stop shop for current and former serving Australian Defence Force members and their families.
“All current serving personnel, veterans and family members can access support from our hubs across the country, including health and mental health services, wellbeing support, advocacy, employment and housing advice, and a place to catch up with mates new and old,” Minister Keogh said.
“This latest hub further expands the existing hub network, and will ensure veterans can access the supports they need close to home.
