Feasibility study for Veterans Support Service

Wednesday, 21 February, 2018

Council is supporting Euroa Health and Veterans Off The Streets Australia (VOTSA) to explore the possibility of establishing a Veterans Integrated Support Service at Euroa Health.

Council voted at last night’s Ordinary Meeting to support the seeking of funding for a feasibility study to identify and quantify the economic outcomes of such a program.

The support service would provide veterans suffering post-traumatic stress disorder with short term accommodation, wellbeing services and training and employment opportunities.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren has been involved in the conversations with Euroa Health and VOTSA about the Veterans program.

“Supporting projects that enhance healthcare services and promote economic growth within the shire is a crucial part of our role as advocates on behalf of our communities,” Mayor McClaren explained.
