The Vietnam Veterans, Peacekeepers and Peacemakers Association Central Coast Sub-branch, which operates from Ettalong Beach, has received a grant of $29,646 from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Federal Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks said the funding would help ex‑service and community organisations to continue to put veterans and their families first.
“It is through the dedication and hard work of ex-service and community organisations that veterans and their families receive services, support and opportunities allowing them to continue active roles in their local communities,” Ms Wicks said.
She said that ex‑service and community organisations, veteran groups and private organisations play a crucial role in supporting the health and welfare of the veteran community.
The funding was announced in the lead up to Veterans’ Health Week, held from October 26 to November 3.
