It is an inclusive organisation, regardless of gender identity, sexual identity, age, ethnicity, or any other intersection that compromises women veterans’ quality of life.

What We Do

Empower Women Veterans

Our aim is to provide funding and grants for programs to support the wellbeing of women veterans. We also seek to provide education and training activities to address issues experienced by women veterans directly tied to their service in the military or separation from the military to empower them to thrive.

Understand Women Veterans Needs

Women Veterans Australia supports initiatives and studies that enhance the understanding of issues and challenges that are unique to women veterans. We believe that in order for services and organisations to adequately support women veterans, they must increase their awareness of what makes women veterans’ experiences and needs different.

Advocate for Women Veterans

Our organisation is passionate about advocating for women veterans. This includes shining a spotlight on women veterans, challenging the narrative of what a modern veteran looks like, and advocating for changes to policies and support mechanisms to meet the needs of women veterans.

Our Values
