Veterans’ Transition Centre, Jarrahdale, WA

A message from North Beach RSL Sub-Branch

A group of North Beach RSL Sub-Branch veterans recently visited the Veterans’ Transition Centre (VTC) in Jarrahdale for DVA’s Veterans Health Week. John Rolfe, President of the Sub-Branch, said: ‘It is part of our ongoing program of events aimed at raising the awareness of facilities and services available to our veterans’.

The VTC is a not-for-profit registered charity that has a property in a natural bush setting nestled in the Darling Ranges on about 17 hectares near Jarrahdale in Western Australia. Jarrahdale is less than an hour south of Perth.

The centre provides:

  • short-term respite accommodation for veterans and families
  • assistance with transition to civilian employment
  • provision of confidential counselling services, including mental health, lifestyle and financial.

Members were greeted by Executive Officer of the VTC, Greg Green, who provided an overview of the Centre and the support and services provided. Greg explained how members may benefit and get involved, and also how that involvement will positively impact the future of the Centre.

Greg guided members around the Centre, discussing the facilities, those under construction, and plans for the future. Members were all impressed by the Centre and its natural bush setting, and this started conversations among the group about how the Sub-Branch may become more involved.

All members agreed that the Veterans’ Transition Centre is a great initiative and encourage other sub-branches to visit and get involved.
