Our Speakers Bureau

The sharing of personal stories of post traumatic stress is a powerful means of raising awareness, reducing stigma and encouraging people to take action.
Our Speakers are Police Veterans who volunteer their time to speak about their experience, to raise awareness of post trauma stress and anxiety. 

Request a Police Veteran Speaker

If you are hosting an event – be it in-person, or virtually – and would like to request a Speaker, please click the link below. Once we receive your request, we will review and begin checking availability.

Would you like to become a Speaker?

Our Speakers assist Police Veterans Victoria by sharing their story to groups in the community. We receive requests from all types of groups and organisations and match them with appropriate Speakers to share their story. By doing so, our Speakers help raise awareness and reduce stigma of post traumatic stress, anxiety and depression.
