Buddy Up Australia connects Australian current and ex-service personnel to their community through purposeful volunteering, social and physical activities.
This includes Australian Defence Force personnel and emergency services personnel, e.g. Ambulance, Police and Fire & Rescue.
Adjusting to life after leaving the service can be a challenge – so Buddy Up Australia has been created to lend a hand. We are here to help you find connection and purpose while making a difference in your local community with like-minded people.
We create close-knit chapters of serving and ex-service personnel around Australia, with each chapter organising regular physical and social events. Every chapter also takes meaningful action to support their local communities, such as contributing to schools with volunteer projects and mentoring programs. There will be education programs around mental health and, for those who need it, the ability to tap into free counselling.
“Not just building mateship between members, we are integrating into local communities where we are making a significant contribution.”
By getting involved, you help other serving and ex-service personnel who may be doing it tough to find support and purpose again.
Join your local chapter, talk to us about starting your own, or sign up to support Buddy Up and the work we are doing with ex-service personnel around Australia.
