Excellent piece of work by @lucybarbour As we become more ‘connected’ somehow we’re losing connection with the people around us. It’s not only older Australians suffering from loneliness. Important to reach out to others who are isolated in our community. @KenWyattMP #auspol https://t.co/6keNkXX0Hn

We can all do more to tackle loneliness among the elderly. I was blown away by the amazing people I interviewed for this. More on 7pm @abcnews tonight. “I was waiting for God”: Loneliness can be dangerous but connection saves lives @politicsabc #auspol https://t.co/vrZRHYXpX8 https://t.co/sFNpvfV4TE

Veterans’ Health Week (VHW) starts today and there are over 140 events and activities being held around the country this week that promote the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle to veterans and their families.

Nutrition is the theme this year and we know that good nutrition leads to improved health and wellbeing, which plays a major role in helping veterans achieve better lifestyle outcomes.

I urge everyone to get involved - you can find details about Veterans’ Health Week on the DVA website :dva.gov.au/veterans-health-week

Having served thousands of Australian soldiers in the Australian Defence Force, on home soil and in operational service in Timor-Leste, Solomon Islands, Bougainville, Sudan, Afghanistan and Iraq, 200 Land Rovers will be offered by a ballot process to RSLs around Australia for use on ANZAC day & other ceremonies.

They are a great piece of history to share with local communities.

RSLs that would like to apply are encouraged to email AMSO@defence.gov.au
