Veterans Centre

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. The centre also caters for Police Veterans under the VEA. Pension Officers as well as an Advocate are available through this service.
