veteran and families lives to be lived well in adelaide’s north

Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Matt Keogh and Member for Spence, Matt Burnell, have today announced Lives Lived Well will receive a $5.445 million grant to develop a new Veterans’ and Families’ Hub in Elizabeth.

This Hub will be a dedicated space supporting veterans and their families, to be established by Lives Lived Well, in partnership with Legacy South Australia.

Located close to RAAF Base Edinburgh, the expansion of the Hub network into Adelaide’s northern suburbs will see more than 10,950 local veterans and their families access improved specialist services close to home.

The Hub will not only be the centre of veteran community connection, it will also feature a range of tailored services seeking to accelerate access to health, advocacy, employment, financial, housing and transition support, as well as referral to other veteran service providers.

With more than 40 years’ experience in providing mental health and wellbeing support, Lives Lived Well will bring their expert perspective to supporting the South Australian veteran community.

The expansion of the Veterans’ and Families’ Hubs network in Northern Adelaide is part of the Government’s $46.7 million commitment to deliver ten new Veterans’ and Families’ Hubs across the country.
