Geelong & Surf Coast Veterans’ Centre
The Geelong – Surfcoast Regional Veterans’ Centre is a non-profit organisation staffed by volunteers and is a member of the Regional Veteran Centres Project (RVCP). The RVCP is recognised by the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) which is very supportive and has a close working relationship with the various member organisations.
Our Pensions and Welfare Officers abide by the Code of Ethics taught by the Training & Information Program (TIP), which is supported by DVA and the mainstream Ex-Service Organisations, or The Code of Conduct accepted under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) by the Regional Veterans Centres Project.
Because of the Privacy Act we cannot initiate contact (such as hospital visits) without your consent/invitation.
This service is provided free of charge to you, the veteran (and your family.) We do get some assistance from the Federal Government through the BEST Funding Grants but as we are a volunteer organisation we also have to raise extra funding by ourselves so donations are gratefully accepted.
