EXPLORE SOCIAL CONNECTION WITH MATES4MATES
You can find mateship and support through Mates4Mates social, recreational and family activities.
Veterans and their families impacted by injuries or mental health illnesses may experience isolation, particularly if they’ve recently transitioned out of a close-knit Defence community. Having a community of like-minded people – a group of mates – can be an important part of your wellbeing and recovery.
At Mates4Mates, they hold regular social connection activities throughout the week and on weekends, to provide a safe place to build connections and find mateship. From weekly barbecues and coffee catchups, to creatives arts or cooking groups, school holiday programs and more.
