How we operate


The Centre takes a wellbeing first approach with our service delivery. This means the health and wellbeing of our clients comes first and encompasses a whole of life care. This care comprises of:


  • Ongoing support from paid staff and volunteers while going through your military to civilian transition and/or rehabilitation journey.
  • Advocate and assist with lodgement of compensation (liability and financial) to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
  • Referrals to trusted partners providing a range of specialised services (ie. legal and financial), and will continue to support you and your family throughout.


The Necessitous Circumstances Gift Fund (NCGF) is a tax deductable (Deductable Gift Recipient) fund to help individuals and families in hardship. It could go towards bridging financial hardship, pay for badly needed but inaccessible medical assistance, paying electricity bills to have the power turned back on and many other scenarios.


These funds can be applied for by the person in need or by an organisation on behalf of the beneficiary. Once the Centre receives the application, an initial assessment is conducted, and recommendation provided to the sub-committee for approval.


Approved funds from all successful applications will be paid directly to the service provider.


If you wish to apply to this fund, please complete the application form below.
