Soldier On provides a range of direct services to our service personnel to connect them to their families and communities, to inspire them to seek assistance, and to empower them through education and employment services, and opportunities for physical and psychological rehabilitation. Soldier On also takes a collaborative, holistic approach, seeking to link service personnel and their families to existing supports and other services in the community, supporting over 500 individuals per month through a range of events from one-hour social
activities to organised weekly sporting activities or weekend intensive workshops.
If Soldier On win one of the $100,000 grants they intend to start a Sports Recovery Program incorporating specific pilot programs in conjunction with National Sporting Organisations (NSO’s) and their South Australian state Affiliates. Soldier On currently has MOU ’s in place with several national sporting organisations and has developed frameworks with each of these for the delivery of broad based sports recovery programs for veterans (and similar service personnel), their spouses and children (12 years of age and over), commencing with a series of pilot programs conducted by NSO’s. The result will be the development and delivery of weekend family programs.
