Our mission is to advance the health and wellbeing of partners and families of past and current serving Australian Military Personnel.

We aim to become the foremost organisation in Australia that:

  • promotes, coordinates and funds research that is not encumbered by political and/or Departmental outcomes.
  • provides support for and advocates for the needs of partners and families of past and current Australian Military personnel.
