Who we are

At Mates4Mates, we are here for those impacted by service.

We are one of Australia’s leading charities actively changing the lives of current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force members, and their families, impacted by service.

Our mission is to provide physical, psychological and social support services to improve the wellbeing of the military family. 

Many of our staff and volunteers come from all areas of the Defence community and understand what it means to serve. They’re experienced in helping veterans overcome hurdles, navigate through recovery and focus on the future. 

In Australia, there is estimated to be more than half a million veterans. Many have been impacted by service-related injuries and need support to help get them through difficult times. We believe that no one should go through recovery alone.
