WE PROVIDE SOCIAL, HEALTH AND WELLBEING OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES

YVSS is the first of its kind in southeast QLD, established 3 years ago after identifying the need in our local community to engage with our younger Veterans. Our key focuses are support in social, health & wellbeing, education, and employment opportunities both for themselves and their families.

Rachel Handley, the Young Veterans Support Services Coordinator and wellbeing advocate here at Currumbin RSL is here to support Veterans may they be transitioning, recently discharged, new to the area and adjusting to their new path. Through engaging with Veterans, we re-establish that sense of connection, purpose, drive and opportunity they may not have had or realised was available to them. 

We encourage our young veterans
