The veteran community in Brisbane’s northern suburbs will now have access to co-ordinated services and supports, following the opening of the Lives Lived Well Veterans’ and Families’ Hub in Caboolture.
With 40 years of experience in providing mental health and wellbeing support, Lives Lived Well will bring an expert perspective to supporting the wellbeing of the Australian veteran community, said Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Matt Keogh.
“Lives Lived Well has partnered with the Vietnam Veterans’ Association of Australia (Queensland Branch), alongside other ex-service organisations and key agencies to provide wrap around support for veterans and their families at the Caboolture Hub,” the Minister said.
“The Hub will be a one stop shop for veterans and families, providing support for employment, housing, transition, advocacy, mental health, wellbeing and counselling services.”
The Hub is open to all current and former serving Australian Defence Force members, including reservists, and their families.
The Caboolture Veterans’ and Families’ Hub is part of the Government’s $46.7 million commitment to deliver 10 Veterans’ and Families’ Hubs across the country.
