We are proud to introduce Soldier On as the charity we are dedicating our challenge to. Solider On provides a range of support to Service Personnel and family members adversely impacted as a result of their service to their nation.
WE WORK SIDE BY SIDE WITH THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED AND CONTINUE TO SERVE OUR NATION, AND THEIR FAMILIES, TO HELP SECURE THEIR FUTURE
Mission: Soldier On’s mission is to work side by side all those who serve and protect Australia. Their services aim to HELP individuals build resilience and create, and expand, meaningful connections with family, community and employers through:
Health and wellbeing – Psychology, social activities and programs, sporting activities and programs and service initiatives.
Employment – Transition services, employment support, career development assistance
Learning – education and training programs, vocational training
Participation – social activities and programs focused on connections with family, friends and the broader community, volunteering and sports programs.
Values: To uphold the values of the Australian Defence Force and the National Security agencies.
In order to achieve this mission, Soldier On has a team of amazing staff who dedicate their time to delivering services directly to service personnel and their families. We have centres in the ACT, Concord NSW, Parkville VIC and offices in Perth WA, Adelaide SA, Currumbin QLD, Newcastle NSW and Albury NSW. Our volunteer network and the generosity of the community, allows for activities and events to be held across the nation and support many service personnel and families outside of city areas.
