We support First Nations ADF members, veterans and their families to share their stories with the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide.
We are a free service that can give you information and confidential legal advice.
We are independent of government, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, the Royal Commission and the Defence Force.
We can help you prepare a submission or prepare for a private session with a Royal Commissioner.
To have a yarn with our First Nations staff, call our Infoline on 1800 33 1800 and ask to speak with Maureen or Tanya.
