APOD supported local veteran families at the 43rd Annual South East Field Days at Lucindale, SA
APOD is honoured to be a part of the South East Field Days and brought helpful information and services directly to veterans and veteran families in the region.
APOD, together with Veterans SA, Open Arms – Veterans & Families Counselling, Legacy Club of South Australia & Broken Hill, Military and Emergency Services Health Australia and Disaster Relief Australia were present at this year’s Field Days event.
SE Field Days was a great a success, with many people attending the event over its two-day program. We received some very positive feedback from our members who were happy with the discounts they could benefit from.
According to Veterans SA, data from the 2021 Census revealed that there are approximately 1,636 people located in the South East region that have served, highlighting the importance of connecting with veterans and their families in the region and raising awareness of the support available.
APOD CEO, Paul Broadbridge said, “We know that we have over 140,000 members, but we know that there are over 500,000 veteran families across Australia. We’ve got a long way to go in reaching those families that we don’t know about and they don’t know about us.
“Our goal is to reach as many local veterans and veteran families as possible and provide them face-to-face advice and information about APOD”
Hence, we’re trying harder each day to reach out to the entire defence and veteran community. Our goal is to reach as many local veterans and veteran families as possible and provide them face-to-face advice and information about APOD.”
Thank you to Veterans SA and to all the organisations who were involved. We would like to thank everyone that stopped by our site. We look forward to seeing you all at other events soon!
