The Department of Communities has developed Western Australia’s first Veterans and Families Strategy.

The Strategy will guide the development and implementation of policies and initiatives that promote the wellbeing of WA’s veterans.

The five themes of the Strategy are:

  • ­Recognition
  • Understanding
  • Support
  • Participation
  • Commemoration

While commemoration of the service and sacrifice of Australian service personnel is integral to the Strategy, it places equal importance on finding ways for the WA economy to benefit from the veteran community.

The Veterans and Families Strategy aims make the most of these veterans, to harness their skills, their knowledge and their sense of public service.
