The Centre was first suggested by the Australian Peacekeepers and Peacemakers Veterans Association.
Heidelberg Repat Veterans Centre was subsequently established in conjunction with the State RSL and VVAA within Austin Health in 2005 and is open to all current and past serving Defence Force Members and their families. Assistance is provided with the submission of claims for compensation associated with service, or the war widows pension. Representatives from the Returned and Services League (Victoria) and Melbourne Legacy are available for consultation and information can be sought and appointments made by contacting:
