Support for the veteran community

Member for Monash, Mr Russell Broadbent, said the funds would assist local organisations to ensure veterans and their families continued to get the support they need as they establish their civilian lives.

Mr Broadbent said, "In my electorate of Monash, funding has been allocated to South Gippsland Landcare Network in consortium with Leongatha RSL to provide nature-based training and learning for younger veterans and families,"

"This is fantastic for veterans and their families in my electorate and I encourage them to engage with some of these projects. Congratulations to the successful applicants for this round and thank you for the ongoing support that you offer to the veteran community."
