Tich & Keith: Veteran Advocacy & Wellbeing help

Posted on: Mon 10 Dec 2018

Tich Tyson and Keith Harrison tell us how The Plympton Veterans Centre is putting a grant from DVA to good use, extending advocacy and wellbeing training and assistance to rural areas.  Tich has just returned from the Riverland area.

The Veterans Centre, located at the Plympton Glenelg RSL, provides ATDP accredited volunteer Compensation and Welfare Advocates prepared to assist veterans and their families with DVA compensation claims and other issues.

Plympton Veterans Centre – The doorway to help.  It’s also a ‘drop-in’ centre for the Veteran community – including their families;  need a form filled in or printed?  Need help compiling a claim or a benefit?; Urgently need food for your family?;  Just need some mateship or to be around like-minded, caring people?
