EXTRA $4.42 MILLION SUPPORT FOR AUSTRALIA’S VETERANS


The Rudd Government has provided a further $4.42 million for more than 220 ex-service

organisations across Australia to directly support the needs of local veterans and their families,

the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Alan Griffin, announced today.


Mr Griffin said the Government had continued to show its strong commitment to the valuable

work of ex-service organisations (ESOs), particularly advocates, pension and welfare officers

who do a great job in helping Australia’s veterans, war widows, widowers, dependants and

current serving members access their entitlements.


“Many veterans look to local ESOs as a first point of contact for advice on getting government

services and benefits and it’s important for ESOs to have the tools and equipment they need to

provide that support,” Mr Griffin said.


“Today’s funding will help ESOs employ trained advocates, pension and welfare officers and

meet ongoing running costs.  


“This round of grants builds on the $2.24 million in grants for capital equipment I announced last

month which helped ESOs purchase equipment and resources such as printers, computers and

internet access and met an election commitment to provide additional capital funds for ESOs.


“I am pleased more than 480 ESOs have benefited from more than $6.66 million in BEST

funding nationally in 2008.


“In addition to funding through BEST, this year around 3000 people have been trained through

my Department’s Training and Information Program (TIP).  While BEST funds people and

equipment, TIP trains the people who support veterans.”


Mr Griffin said advocates, pension and welfare officers make a real difference to the quality of

claims received by his Department.


“My Department received more than 49,000 income support and compensation claims last

financial year.  By funding, equipping and training advocates, pension and welfare officers, the

claims process can operate as efficiently as possible, delivering veterans their rightful

entitlements sooner,” Mr Griffin said.


Mr Griffin encouraged all ESOs and community organisations interested in applying for funding

to support projects for veterans to contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, phone 133 254
