Since May 2003 the Partners of Veterans Association Western Australia Inc has been an independent association who assists the partners of military veterans. Partners of Veterans Association Western Australia Inc is a membership organisation which is open to all current and former spouses, partners, widows and widowers of Australian veterans, peacekeepers, and peacemakers regardless of which arm of the defence service or conflict the veterans served in. This includes partners of current service personnel. Membership is also open to all who are seeking the support of others, who are willing to offer support to others in a similar situation, or who just want to share an occasional cuppa with friends.
Partners of Veterans Association Western Australia Inc is committed to offering their support through its Circles of Friends, The Daisy Chain Newsletter, website, and functions or events promoting health and well being. Partners of Veterans Association Western Australia Inc endeavours to offer more practical assistance by way of educating members and promoting issues faced by the partners and families of veterans. Partners of Veterans Association Western Australia Inc is a registered charitable institution and endorsed deductible gift recipient, which means any money donated to Partners of Veterans Association Western Australia Inc is a tax deductible donation.
Our logo explained…being a local Western Australian association we have chosen the state emblem of the black swan to be our centerpiece. Surrounding that swan is a chain of daisies, these daisies represent each of us the members. While we may be separate and may become scattered, when combined into the chain we become stronger and united as one.
We keep in regular contact with our members through our newsletter the Daisy Chain, through our group Circle of Friends, and with visits to our country centers. Each year we attend the Back To The Bush reunion at Bruce Rock where we hold a meeting, have a craft stall at the Saturday Markets, and participate in the march and the Church service.
