Soldier On and BAE Systems Australia have announced an enhanced partnership to support the health, employment and rehabilitation of Australia’s returned service personnel and their families.

Having partnered with Soldier On since 2015, on Wednesday BAE Systems Australia committed a donation of $250,000. This donation enables an expansion of Soldier On’s health and wellbeing, education, employment and social programs and will complement BAE Systems’ employee fundraising and volunteering program.

Incoming Soldier On CEO Matt Jones said, "On average there are more than 5,000 individuals leaving the Australian Defence Force and national security agencies each year. While not everyone needs or wants help, it’s important that they know it is not only available to them, but their family as well."

These programs are vitally important to the service community, with one in four ex-service men and women experiencing a mental health issue each year.

Soldier On’s programs focus on the prevention and treatment of these issues by providing physical and mental health rehabilitation, education, employment and career transition support, as well as creating meaningful connections and a sense of belonging.

"Soldier On is so grateful for the support of BAE Systems Australia. This major donation and our ongoing partnership, will not only allow us to support more service personnel and their families across the country, it sends the message that large organisations like BAE, care about those who have served our nation," Jones said. 

BAE Systems Australia chief executive Gabby Costigan said, "We are grateful for the courage and sacrifice of the men and women who have served our country, and we’re proud to support the important work that Soldier On is doing to support them after their service."

Soldier On works side by side with those who serve and protect Australia, and their families, helping them to secure their futures.

On average there are more than 5,000 individuals leaving the ADF and national security agencies each year. One in four ex-service men and women will experience a mental health issue each year.
