Women Veterans Network Australia

Women Veterans Network Australia is a network helping women veterans connect with each other to share information and access services via social media and in local groups. WVNA supports all organisations that help veterans and works with them to establish peer support networks focused on the specific health and well-being needs of women veterans to ease transition, isolation and assist with readjustment problems. WVNA is inclusive of all ranks who are currently serving or have served in the Navy, Army or Air Force, either in a full time or Reserve capacity, regardless of whether they have been deployed or not.
