Why join the P.V.A?

P.V.A. is a not-for-profit, charitable, non government organisation – we are autonomous and entirely volunteer based. P.V.A. is not funded by government (other than Grant applications) – our funding comes from membership fees, donations and/or fundraising by members.

The Partners of Veterans Association of Australia (P.V.A.) was the first association to acknowledge the needs of partners and families. P.V.A. was formed in 1999 to represent, support and be there for all Partners.

P.V.A.'s core belief is that there must always be an association to represent this previously forgotten and at-risk group.

P.V.A. believes it is imperative that no Partner should ever feel deserted, defeated or most of all, totally isolated and/or alone.

This Association offers support, friendship, information and understanding from people in similar situations. We are vigilant in watching for any changes that the government of the day may introduce that are detrimental to you or your family's health, lifestyle and well-being.

Join over 3000 other partners across Australia via our network of state branches, sub-branches/support groups for support, friendship, informaton and understanding at local, state and national level.

Unity is Strength
