Veterans' Active Recreation Program
As part of the Tasmanian Government’s election policy ‘Supporting Our Veterans’, the Government committed to provide $225,000 to establish a partnership with the Parks and Wildlife Service to provide an active recreation program for returned service personnel.
Point Assist is the successful recipient of the Government's Active Recreation Program to support the wellbeing of our contemporary veterans.
Point Assist will receive $225,000 over three years to provide an outdoor recreation experience for returned service personnel in a National Park environment, which provides a challenging outdoor experience, with a focus on mental health and wellbeing, and links to training pathways and employment in outdoor education and eco-tourism.
