Veteran Central is a service for Victorian veterans to interact with Ex-Service Organisations and get the support they need to maintain their wellbeing. Our 1300 MILVET (1300 645 838) number is staffed by Navigators who will work directly with you to find and link you to supports that are available. This might be within RSL programs, our Ex-Service Organisation community in Australia, or help navigating the DVA system or Commonwealth aged care system.
Services and staff are located across Victoria and often in person support is also available to many veterans and their families.
Who is eligible?
Any veteran or family member of a veteran is welcome to speak to us. RSL defines a veteran as anyone who has served within the Australian or an Allied Defence Force, including reservists. We know there are different eligibility criteria for different DVA and ESO services; we can help you navigate these.
