Veterans Portfolio


| Veterans Portfolio | Announcements and Information | Initiatives | Legislation | ANZAC Day Trust |


Following the 2013 State election the Liberal National Government established the Veterans portfolio with a dedicated Minister for Veterans. While the Australian Government, through the Department of Veterans' Affairs, is largely responsible for veterans' matters, there are areas where the State Government can support our ex-service community.

In 2014 the State Government established a Veterans Advisory Council, providing a forum for the veterans' community to raise issues of concern with the Western Australian Government and providing the Minister for Veterans with a source of advice and expertise on matters pertaining to veterans.
