There’s always someone to turn to for support.
Connectivity / Authenticity / Respect / Empathy
Through the breadth of stakeholders referring veterans, it’s evident the ethos of camaraderie and the Police family is still in play, many years after members have left the job. Friends, former colleagues, Police Welfare, Police Legacy, The Police Association and Police Psychology are just some of the support services making contact.
What’s also evident is the average age of veterans who are facing a change in career and a new identity, in as young as their 30’s. One horrific day at work that can be career ending. It could happen three months after leaving the academy, or thirty years.
make a difference.
Police Veterans Victoria was established with funds raised from the Head 2 Head fundraising walk in 2018. These funds were used to professionalise a volunteer organisation and advocate on behalf of all for police veterans.
Funds are used to help directly improve the mental health of police veterans and their families.
But we still need your financial support to keep the momentum going on this important cause.
