Northern Territory

Veteran and Family Wellbeing Centre in Darwin

Mates4Mates is heading to the Northern Territory. 

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs recently appointed Mates4Mates as the lead organisation for the Northern Territory Veteran and Family Wellbeing Centre. 

Based in Darwin, but servicing the entire Territory, the centre will provide support and rehabilitation to veterans and their families.  

We’ll be partnering with local organisations and stakeholders to deliver services including psychological support, physical rehabilitation and wellbeing programs, along with employment, transition and housing programs, and advocacy support.  

We will have a Regional Manager starting in Darwin this year to launch a selection of programs and wellbeing services for the veteran community, with the centre expected to open in 2022.
