Our relentless advocacy provides a voice for war widows and veteran families. We make sure your needs, views and opinions are heard, then elevated to be heard in the places that can create change. It’s been the cornerstone of our work since day one.
Since AWWNSW’s creation, our advocacy has been rigorous and persistent, resulting in positive change for members of the veteran community.
We have been major contributors to key government reviews, creating submissions for the:
- Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide
- Defence Honours and Awards Tribunal Inquiry
- Family Support Package Advocacy and the Veterans Children Education Scheme.
We also help our members to navigate the complex veteran systems to access services, support and entitlements.
