The event will bring together ex-service organisations, veterans, their families, and carers for a morning of connection and support. Morning tea will also be served.

The Hub was opened last month by the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister for Defence Personnel, Matt Keogh. Mr Keogh said one of every 25 residents in Caboolture was a current or former serving member of Australia’s Defence Force.

Whether individuals are reflecting on their service or navigating the transition into civilian life, having timely access to the right support can significantly impact their health and wellbeing, as well as that of their families.

With two organisations operating the Hub, Lives Lived Well Board Chair Damian Wright said, “The Hub is staffed by a team with either lived or learned veteran experience, who have begun fostering strong connections with ex-service organisations across northern Brisbane.

“Whether you need a coffee and a chat, access to wellbeing support, or you want to meet like-minded friends, you’re welcome at the Hub.”

Anyone interested in the open day is asked to RSVP by email at by November 17.
