Help SWAP’n’GO Raise $25,000 for Soldier On

SWAP’n’GO is contributing $1 for every gas bottle refill sold during the week of 19-25 April 2015. 

This money is to help injured and wounded service men and women of the Australian Defence Forces.

What it’s About

The contributions go to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.

The beneficiaries are veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, relating to their military service.

Soldier OnWho is Soldier On

The monies are being contributed to Soldier On. 

This organisation is about Australians coming together to show their support for our physically and psychologically injured and wounded service people.  

It is a show of support for the men and women of our Defence forces.

Thanks to the support of the Australian public, they work to enhance recovery, inspire communities and empower Australia’s injured and wounded, giving those who have served our country the dignity they deserve and the chance to do and be whatever they choose.

Rehabilitation

Soldier On works to enhance the rehabilitation of Australia’s wounded so that we can offer them world’s best care in return for their service to Australia.   

Clinical Psychologists offer counselling and psychological support for individuals, couples, families and children of our wounded men and women to address a range of mental health issues.

Soldier On is partnering with St John of God Richmond Hospital, to ensure that wounded Australians are receiving the best care possible. 

We are working with the rehabilitative team to identify areas fundraised money will be best spent in the treatment of Australia’s wounded. 

Soldier On has also funded the refitting of the SJOG gym to further support young veterans’ rehabilitation

Education

Soldier On has a range of partnerships and opportunities that will allow veterans to re-skill for civilian life. 

We have partnered with the Citadel Group and the Australian Business Academy to provide free online training, with opportunities to achieve diploma level qualifications in a variety of fields. These include:

  • Information Technology

  • Human Resource Management

  • Accounting

  • Graphic Design

  • Management

  • Business Administration

Economic Empowerment

Soldier On empowers our wounded through education and employment, ensuring their sacrifices do not extend beyond their wound or injury.

Once they leave the Australian Defence Force, it’s vital they are provided with opportunities to live fulfilling and successful lives.

Through free educational opportunities, employment assistance and work placements, Soldier On works to ensure our participants can continue to pursue their dreams and overcome the challenges they face.

Konekt and Soldier On have developed a program to assist individuals to regain meaningful employment. 

It consists of three phases – vocational assessments, skills for work training, and job seeking and employment placements.  Family members are also able to access this service.

Working with Frontier People, they can provide assistance in CV development, career coaching and mentoring, interview preparation and advice.  

This is available either face-to-face in Canberra, or via online teleconferencing anywhere in Australia.

How You Can Help

All you have to do is get a SWAP’n’GO® refill during the week of 19-25 April 2015. 

Elgas will contribute $1 for every gas bottle swapped during the week, up to our goal of $25,000.
