The Veterans’ Support Centre Lockyer/Brisbane Valley will continue to support local veterans and their families after securing funding through the Building Excellence in Support and Training grants program.
Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz congratulated the Veterans’ Support Centre on receiving $29,745.82 through the grants program.
“This funding will go a long way to helping the hard-working volunteers of the Veterans’ Support Centre offer an even better service to local veterans and their families,” Mr Buchholz said.
“We have an active defence community in the electorate and a little bit of help from the Veterans’ Support Centre goes a long way.”
Veterans’ Support Centre Lockyer/Brisbane Valley member Grant Mullins said the grant money would improve the work the Centre does in the community.
“This money will help us to continue to provide welfare assistance and advocacy services through various social events, programs, functions and fundraisers,” Mr Mullins said.
“Our aim is to prevent social isolation, get our local veterans out of the house and provide the support they need.”
Mr Buchholz thanked the Veterans’ Support Centre for their work in the community.
“I’m proud to be part of a government which supports the work of the Veterans’ Support Centre and our local defence community,” Mr Buchholz said.
“I thank the Veterans’ Support Centre for the invaluable work they do towards improving the lives of our veterans and their families in our community.”
