Social connection activities
Engaging social activities provide opportunities for meaningful connections with other veterans and families.
You will find mateship and support through our social, recreational and family activities.
Veterans and their families impacted by injuries or mental health illnesses may experience isolation, particularly if they’ve recently transitioned out of a close-knit Defence community. Having a community of like-minded people – a group of mates – can be an important part of your wellbeing and recovery.
At Mates4Mates, we hold regular social connection activities throughout the week and on weekends, to provide a safe place to build connections and find mateship. From weekly barbecues and coffee catchups, to creatives arts or cooking groups, school holiday programs and more.
Everyone you will meet understands what it means to be part of the Defence community. To speak with us confidentially about joining Mates4Mates and our social connection activities, get in touch below.
