Nutrition will be the theme for this year’s Veterans’ Health week with funding for applications to support events highlighting the week now open for Ex-Service organisations (ESOs) and community groups.
Member for Mackellar Jason Falinski said Veterans’ Health Week in September was a fantastic opportunity for Ex-Service organisations and community groups to positively engage with veterans in their communities and promote the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle.
“This year’s Veterans’ Health Week will highlight the importance of improving and maintaining good nutritional health.” Mr Falinski said.
“Our local ex-service organisations and community groups provide fantastic ongoing support, engagement and information to the veteran and ex-service community. We recognise their efforts and commend their ongoing contributions to our community.”
Veterans’ Health Week will run from Saturday 22 September to Sunday 30 September 2018. Applications for funding close on 29 June 2018.
The Veterans’ Health Week funding application form, resource guide and other documentation to assist event organisers are now available on the DVA website: dva.gov.au/veterans-health-week.
