Veterans Health Week cash offer
COMMUNITY groups and ex- service organisations can now apply for funding to support local events organised for Veterans’ Health Week 2017.
Veterans’ Health Week will run from Saturday, October 21, to Sunday, October, 29 with a “physical activity” theme.
Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Dan Tehan said ex- service organisations ( ESOs) and community groups with a link to the veteran community were eligible to apply for VHW funding for activities relevant to this year’s theme.
Applications close on Monday, July 31.
“We should all be trying to lead a fitter and healthier life, and Veterans’ Health Week is a fantastic opportunity to honour the service and sacrifice of the men and women who serve in defence of nation while promoting healthy living,” Mr Tehan said.
“We are encouraging ESOs and community groups to or- ganise events that encourage healthy, active and engaged communities to support current and former ADF personnel and their families.
“Veterans’ Health Week events will help connect veterans with their local communities.”
The VHW funding application form, information kit, resource guide and other documentation to assist activity organisers are available on the DVA website.
