Join Matt Brennan and Ian Storie for their webinar introducing Servulink to the veteran, family and veteran service provider community. We will describe how Servulink is building an online information hub, accessible via our user-friendly App, that will enable veterans and their families to find, navigate and connect with those services, support and community activities that suit their individual needs: simply and efficiently; accessible anywhere, any time.
Servulink is founded on the principles of simplicity, access, connection and collaboration. We believe in empowering and enabling those that have served Australia and their families with the tools and information they need to improve their lives. Such positive empowerment of this community through technology will transform the future veteran support landscape towards a more proactive, preventative approach – driving early, positive outcomes preemptively rather than reacting to problems or crises after they manifest.
