Please note that due to government requirements a number of health & wellbeing programs have been modified to comply with restrictions and guidelines

*Under Victorian legislation, a veteran is someone who has served, is currently serving in the Australian Armed Forces, and recognises Commonwealth or Allied service.

The individual does not need to have seen active/warlike service overseas to meet the definition. Both full-time/regular and part-time/reserve service falls within the criteria.

**In accordance with Branch By-Law’s regarding patriotic welfare funds monies, may only be spent on Veterans & dependants (as defined by the Branch By-Laws).
