Commando-Welfare-Trust

 

Whilst the Departments of Defence and Veteran Affairs have established processes to cover initial financial responses to the death or serious injury of Special Operations Command (SOCOMD) personnel, these tragic events invariably cause hardship for many years to come.

The Commando Welfare Trust has been created to support both initial emergency funding and then long term financial requirements of families in times of hardship where existing funding or grants or entitlements no longer provide support.

Project-Excalibur

 

The aim of Project Excalibur is to provide an additional dimension of welfare and health care for members and families of the Australian Special Air Service Regiment.

The Special Air Service Resources Trust is a perpetual trust fund which provides relief to current and former members of the Special Air Service Regiment and their dependants, who become deceased or permanently disabled in or as a result of active service or operational training.

White-Cloud

 

The White Cloud Foundation was created in 2011 with a mission to help increase resources and improve access to support for people, families and carers who live with depression in Australia.

Each year over 1 million Australians are diagnosed with depression with many more that go undiagnosed, untreated and unsupported.

The Navy Clearance Diver Trust, modelled on the SASRT, was created by a group of former Clearance Divers for the benefit of RAN Clearance Divers and their families whether they are on operational service or in training.

RAN Clearance Divers routinely work in an inhospitable environment, undertaking varied tasks including explosive ordnance disposal, counter terrorist duties and high risk ship boarding’s. The risk to Clearance Divers being killed, badly injured and/or made permanently medically unfit to dive, in the course of their work is high. Sadly, like others in the Australian Defence Force (ADF), Clearance Divers are not well compensated through workers’ compensation schemes, or other industry based funds, and cannot access legal chains to remedy this. The NCDT aims to address this.
