We are committed to supporting the community in which we operate through charity and volunteering. Our team members currently support the following organisations:
Wandering Warriors is a veteran charity organisation supporting veterans and their families through Education, Employment, Respite and Mentoring programs.
They also host a range of flagship events that bring the veteran community together and partner with specialised service providers for welfare and bespoke services.
AVEC Australian Veterans Employers Coalition
AVEC was founded in November 2017 to support the Prime Minister’s Veteran’s Employment Program. Founded by six leading Australian organisations,
AVEC recognised their collective strength in being able to improve employment outcomes for transitioning service members, job-seeking veterans and their partners, by connecting them with Australia’s largest community of employers.
US Navy SEAL Foundation
The Navy SEAL Foundation provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and its families.
The Foundation has established a comprehensive set of programs specifically designed to improve health and welfare, build and enhance resiliency, empower and educate families and provide critical support during times of illness, injury, loss and transition. Christian is a mentor to the Foundation.
Smith Family Challenge
The Smith Family Challenge is an annual fundraising event that helps to break the cycle of disadvantage. The Challenge directly funds the Smith Family’s Learning for Life programs,
which support children and young people to participate more fully in their education by providing innovative, evidence-based programs and emotional, practical and financial support throughout their schooling and tertiary education. Since 2008, the Challenge has raised over A$5 million, which equates to sponsoring close to 7,000 disadvantaged primary school students with their entire education for one year. VCA has raised over A$50,000 in the last two years for the Challenge.
