Plympton Veterans Centre
Plympton Veterans Centre is staffed by volunteer Compensation and Welfare Advocates from across many Ex Service Organisations (ESO) including Vietnam Veterans Federation, Returned and Services League, and Military Brotherhood MMC.
The concept of bringing ESO together under the one roof is not new to the eastern states and is in keeping with the new Advocacy Training and Development Program (ATDP) model as a Community of Practice (CoP).
One of the benefits of a CoP is that resources such as IT and office equipment and stationery are pooled saving ESO and DVA money.
But more importantly with Advocates from different ESO working together and Senior Advocates mentoring less experience Advocates better outcomes are achieved for Veterans and their families.
