Defence has launched the Engage ’Supporting Those Who Serve’ website which aims to simplify the process of finding information and accessing free support and services for current and former Australian Defence Force members, their families and/or those involved in their support.
Previously members and former members, their families and/or those involved in their support had to navigate a broad range of websites in search of information, support and services provided by Government agencies, not-for-profit service providers and charities.
QLD TPI has registered with Engage to offer our free support and services to members (current and former), their families and/or those involved with their care.
The Engage website provides a common entry point that is easily accessible from a range of mobile devices and connects users with free support and services from Government agencies, not-for-profit service providers, charities and other service providers who chose to participate and have met the eligibility requirements. Eligibility is determined based on a range of criteria including their ability to meet users’ needs, geographical location (local, regional, national), and the support services required.
Members, their family and/or those involved with their care who access Engage, do not need to register and individual usage of the website is not tracked or recorded in an individual identifiable manner.
The website is open to all service providers and charities who wish to register their free support and services.
Engage is a Defence initiative under the Support for Wounded, Injured and Ill Program, a joint Defence and Department of Veterans’ Affairs program of work developed with the aim to improve the support provided to wounded, injured or ill Australian Defence Force members, their families and/or those involved in their support.
The Engage website is open to all service providers and charities who wish to register and are willing to offer their free support and services.
QLD TPI has joined the Engage website to offer free services and support to current and former serving ADF members and their families.
