Hub helped to serve ex-service personnel

The Limestone Coast Veterans Service Hub recently purchased a veteran community vehicle, thanks to a $20,000 grant under Round 7 of the Stronger Communities Program.

Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the vehicle would support new vulnerable veterans to rehabilitate in the Lower South East region and support and assist ageing veterans and their families to their houses as they need wellbeing support.

Mr Pasin said servicemen and women, veterans and their families have given so much to the defence and security of our nation and, in return, it was our duty to provide them with the very best support possible.

“We have a large, active and proud veteran community here in the Limestone Coast and I am committed to continuing to work closely with the Limestone Coast Veteran Service Hub volunteers to ensure essential services are delivered at the grassroots level,” he said.

Limestone Coast Veteran Service Hub Welfare and Compensation Support’ Laurie Mann said the vehicle would be a great tool to support their most vulnerable families when needed and allow them to enhance their services across the region.

“This support will allow us to provide a more comprehensive support across the Limestone Coast Region and into Western Victoria, enhancement of our Veteran Community Reachout support,” Mr Mann said.

“The vehicle will enhance the training and community wellbeing provided across our region in running community awareness programs more frequently.”
