Royal Commission Submission – October 2023

Australian War Widows NSW (AWWNSW) recently made a second written submission to the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide.

This submission is the second written submission provided by Australian War Widows NSW Ltd to the Royal Commission. The content of this submission built from AWWNSW’s first written submission in October 2021.

In this document, we acknowledge the progress that has been made by the Royal Commission and highlight the issues faced by Veterans families and how crucial it is for them to be included into the Royal Commission\’s agenda.

Due to its experience, leadership, and network, AWWNSW has formed a view on several items raised by the Commissioners. The opinions expressed through and by AWWNSW below were formed through consultation with members, its broad community, Directors, and staff.

The opinions expressed through AWWNSW’s submission amplify the voices of veterans’ families and caregivers, ensuring those that are on the front line of veteran support are heard.

The full submission can be read here.

If you would like to contribute your insights, ideas, experiences, or reflections to the Royal Commission please contact the AWW NSW CEO at ceo@warwidowsnsw.com.au.

AWW NSW advocates for the needs of all women and families of veterans connected to Defence service. We provide a voice for our members and community to ensure their views are represented across all areas that impact upon them.
