The theme for this year’s Veterans Health week will be nutrition, with funding applications to support events highlighting the week now open for ex-service organisations (ESOs) and community groups.

Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Darren Chester said Veterans’ Health Week in September is an opportunity for ESOs and community groups to positively engage with veterans in their communities and promote the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle.

"Nutrition plays a big part in being healthy and we know that it leads to improved wellbeing and is a part of achieving better lifestyle outcomes,” Minister Chester said.

"Funding is available to support the development and delivery of Veterans’ Health Week events and can include great initiatives like information sessions with dieticians and nutritionists, supermarket and grocery tours or learning more about food labels."

The minister said organisations that provide ongoing support, engagement and information to the veteran and ex-service community are vital to the success of Veterans’ Health Week.

"Any ESO or community group with a link to the broader veteran community is eligible to apply and encouraged to partner with other organisations that promote healthy, active and engaged lifestyles," he said.

"Think outside the square and get creative, activities like cooking and sharing a meal is also a great way to learn new skills, meet people, share recipes and try fresh and healthy food options."
