Freedom and independence for all Australian women veterans

Women Veterans United provides services
and support to women veterans improving
their overall quality of life.

Supporting Australia’s Women Veterans

Women Veterans United's (WVU) support and programs are designed to assist women veterans with improving quality of life in and after their service in the military and address their unique needs and concerns. It is to create a sisterhood as an organisation founded on Christian values.

Unity represents oneness, a common purpose, to bring stability, confidence, encouragement, support and a sense of belonging, to women veterans.

Our Values

Empowerment

Empowerment is a fundamental human right and essential to welfare. Women deserve to lead safe, fulfilled and productive lives. The Women Veterans United promotes women’s sense of self-worth and their ability to make their own choices so they can reach their full potential.

Service

We are committed to serving Australia’s women veterans who are facing adversity. As a welfare organisation, we focus on the veteran and their goals. As a service organisation, we consider the wellbeing of all women veterans as paramount.

Support

We are focused on supporting women veterans to ensure they are able to rise out of any situation. We provide ongoing service provision, comfort, and encouragement, to support the goals of women ensuring quality of life is achieved.

Inclusion

We are an inclusive organisation focused on ensuring all women veterans, regardless of religious faith, culture, ethnicity, age, sexuality, etc, know they are welcome to ask for assistance and support in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
