Partners of Veterans Support Group – (Patron Mrs Lynne Cosgrove)

We are a group of women who have joined together to support and inform partners of veterans. Many partners are in urgent need of that support. We aim to reach these women, to listen to their needs, to develop much needed back up and friendship. With the help of speakers we also hope to generally improve understanding and better lifestyle management. This association is connected with numerous support groups throughout NSW. Our group is for partners of veterans from all theatres of war in which the Australian Armed Forces have been involved. Please click the following Link to their website www.pva.org.au
