BVAC receives funding grant.

It is estimated approximately 5000 veterans live in the Ballarat Region with possibly that many again across the whole of the Western District. While there were ex-service organisations in Ballarat and surrounding districts, previously there was no hub available for veterans to utilise as a one-stop-shop to find information and support regarding service providers and entitlements.

The BVAC was recently the recipient of a funding grant under the Commonwealth Stronger Communities Programme.   The BVAC sincerely thanks Katherine King MP for her support of our application.
