Donations allow us to assist both current and former serving men and women of the Australian Defence Force by:

- Advocating for improved conditions of service for ADF members and their families;

- Campaigning for fair and equitable treatment and retirement benefits for former ADF members; and

- Providing advocacy services on behalf of serving and retired personnel who may have a claim on Government under various Commonwealth legislation covering superannuation, compensation and veterans' entitlements (eg DVA).
