Veteran suicide

Ed,

The Royal Commission on veteran suicide has shown there is no one place for veterans and their families to get the support they need. The Federal Government knows this, which is why it introduced Veteran Wellbeing Centres.

The problem is the only Centre in NSW happens to be in Nowra.

The North Coast has one of the largest populations of veterans anywhere in NSW. That is why the RSL is calling on the Federal Government to expand the rollout of Centres to key locations across NSW.

People in the Clarence Valley have begun writing to Mr Kevin Hogan MP calling on him to support the RSL campaign. If you are a veteran, a family member or friend of a veteran, or just concerned with how we care for our ex-servicemen and women, please write to your local MP to share your concerns.
