Supporting Queensland Veterans and their Families

Queenslanders honour, respect and remember the sacrifice and service of our veterans.

As we unite and recover from the impacts of COVID-19, we can never forget the special place our veterans hold in our past, present and future.

Our veterans have served us in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping missions abroad. At home, our serving members of the Australian Defence Forces have been there for us in our times of need as together we have fought floods, fires and now a devastating global pandemic.

When it’s time for serving members of the ADF to transition to civilian life, as thousands do every year, working together, we will be there for them. This is our shared responsibility.

That's why a re-elected Palaszczuk Labor Government will commit $10 million over four years for services and programs to support veterans and their families living in Queensland.

Labor is honoured to continue playing our part support veterans who have served us.
