"Opened my eyes to so many opportunities"

Port Adelaide's ADF Veterans Program is assisting with the transition to civilian life and find their purpose and identity away from the ADF, with the support of the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

Drawing on the similarities of transitioning from high-performing environments, ex AFL-players and ADF veterans come together to re-identify a sense of purpose and community connection.

Delivered over a six week period, outcomes seek to address challenges associated with transition, mental health, wellbeing and relationships.

In addition to the six weeks, a number of events are delivered across the year with current and past program participants to promote ongoing connection and belonging.
