ESO Report

ESO Report - Melbourne Legacy

The Victorian Ex-Service Organisations' (ESOs) Mapping Project provides key recommendations to enable a more coordinated, collaborative and targeted provision of services from Victorian ESOs, so that they can meet the current and future demand from younger veterans and their families.

The project involved engaging with ESOs and actively seeking opinions from younger veterans and their families. The final report provides an overview of the needs of veterans, particularly those who have served post-1991, and their families, and the services currently available to them, which will assist federal and state governments and the ESO sector to shape future support.

Victorian ESOs' Mapping Project Report

The Young Veterans Project

During the Victorian ESOs Mapping Project we invited ex-servicemen and women who have served post-1991 to share their experience in transitioning to civilian life. Each story is a unique insight into the process of transitioning from the Defence Force, and provides a way for veterans to voice their opinion on the current state of the ex-service organisation sector which will lead to positive change.

By sharing their story veterans are assisting ex-service organisations in identifying service gaps and opportunities for collaboration within the state of Victoria. This is a vital step to ensure that the necessary services are made available to all younger veterans and their families who may live in metropolitan, regional or rural areas.

To hear from more veterans about the challenges they faced while transitioning please visit www.youngveteransproject.com.au.
