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 preferred provider 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 on the Gold Coast, Brisbane South and on the Darling Downs.
Accessible, integrated and flexible support
The new Veteran Wellbeing Centre planned for South-East Queensland 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-co-ordinated;
- 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 speak to, that someone is in your corner, that you can talk about things with a person is absolutely amazing.
Who is Lives Lived Well?
What services will be offered?
The Centre will act as a shopfront to provide simple and flexible access to relevant services. Our team will be made up of experienced Wellbeing Co-ordinators and people with lived experience of Veteran life, to ensure anyone accessing the centre is supported in a safe and understanding way.
Our team will work in partnership with ESOs and other key partners to help the Veteran or their family member to access services and supports.
Wellbeing co-ordination will be delivered in-person, by phone and online, to ensure flexibility and accessibility.
Interested in working with us?
We will be looking for experienced clinicians to work at the new Centre, as well as a range of paid and volunteering roles suited to people with a lived experience of life in the Defence Forces. We anticipate having a range of roles, including a Centre Manager, Veteran and Family Engagement Co-ordinator, and Wellbeing Co-ordinators.
