A place for the Veteran community to access wellbeing services and support in their local community.

Flexible support for Veterans and their families

Serving in the Australian Defence Force (ADF) or having a family member who is serving or has served is a unique and sometimes challenging experience.

Whether these challenges occur in service or through transition into civilian life, having access to the right supports when you need them can make a real difference to your health and wellbeing, as well as the wellbeing of your family.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) has selected Lives Lived Well as the lead organisation to develop a detailed business case for a new Veteran Wellbeing Centre for South-East Queensland. This business case has been submitted and is currently being assessed by DVA.

Our proposal is to deliver a Veteran Wellbeing Centre on Brisbane’s northside, with support services also provided from our hubs in Ipswich/Toowoomba, Beenleigh and the Gold Coast.

Accessible, integrated and flexible support

The new Veteran Wellbeing Centre, coming to south-east Queensland in late 2022, will host services that ensure Veterans and their families:

  • experience innovative and flexible services that respond to their transition and ongoing needs;
  • receive essential health and wellbeing services that are locally focused, accessible and well-coordinated;
  • benefit from greater integration of government and non-government services.

The Centre will be a welcoming, non-judgemental and accessible space, supported by a team of skilled and experienced wellbeing staff.

Having a lifeline like this Centre would just be amazing. Knowing that there’s someone you can call, that someone is in your corner, that you can talk about things with a person is absolutely amazing.
