Bravery Trust may be required to liaise with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) or other service providers you have been in contact with to verify your situation, and in many cases we will co-operate with other ex-service organisations to provide the best and most effective assistance. We will make every effort to assist you in a timely, respectful and compassionate manner throughout the application process. All enquiries and applications are treated within strict privacy guidelines as per the Australian Privacy Act.
We will confirm receipt of your application and explain the process to you fully. You may be contacted for further information in relation to your application. For those we cannot assist under the terms of Bravery Trust, we will endeavour to assist by referral to other care organisations.
