This year’s Veterans’ Health Week (VHW), to be held from Saturday, 21 October to Sunday, 29 October 2017, will focus on the theme of physical activity.
During VHW, DVA will partner with ex-service organisations and community groups to highlight the importance of having a healthy lifestyle, which can help us to stay connected to others and live a happier and longer life.
IDVA can provide some funding to ex-service organisations and community groups to support VHW activities that reflect the annual theme. Applications for funding are now open until 31 July 2017.
Trial of MyService
DVA is seeking Australian Defence Force (ADF) members who enlisted after 30 June 2004 and have an injury or disease related to their ADF service to register with MyService today.
MyService is a new online service that provides an easier way for clients to get covered by DVA. For the purpose of the MyService trial, the term ‘cover’ is being used instead of ‘claim’.
