Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Media Release – Thursday, 18 December 2014
Improving access to information in an easy to navigate format has guided the re-development and improvement of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) website which was launched today by the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Senator the Hon. Michael Ronaldson.
Through a single online entry point, DVA clients of all ages can access all the information they need about compensation, health care and financial support in just a few simple clicks. Information about commemoration, educational resources, grants and other services is also available online.
As the importance of communicating through online channels continues to grow, DVA has developed a website that improves the way veterans and their families can access the information, support and services they need.
The website re-development follows consultation with veterans, current serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and the ex-service community.
The website is a valuable means of communication, with over one million page views per month. It is a valuable way for veterans and the general public to find information and is for many veterans their first contact with DVA. The new-look website will improve access to information.
The redeveloped website continues the Department’s mission of being responsive to the needs of veterans and their families.
You can visit the new-look website at www.dva.gov.au
