Veterans’ Health Week (VHW) this year will be held from Saturday 22nd to Sunday 30th October 2016.
This year’s theme is Social Connection.
The week is an opportunity for veterans, war widows, widowers, current and ex-Australian Defence Force members and their families to participate, connect and influence the health and wellbeing of themselves and their friends.
DVA has partnered with Ex-service organizations’ (ESOs) and community groups to develop a program of fun and interactive events and activities at a local level.
Canvas friends, family and acquaintances to come along to events planned in your local area and take part in the fun. Note that all members of the veteran and service communities, their friends, carers and families are encouraged to participate. This year DVA is hoping that members of the veteran community will make a special effort to come along with friends, family and acquaintances who don’t normally get involved in veteran activities.
