Why is there a Trust?
Restrictions on some existing organisations meant they are often unable to provide the full support required by soldiers and their families.
We are committed to assisting families with emergency funding and long term financial support when other funding, grants or entitlements cannot.

Supporting soldiers and families
Whilst the Departments of Defence and Veteran Affairs have established processes to cover initial financial responses to the death or serious injury of Special Operations Command (SOCOMD) personnel, these tragic events invariably cause hardship for many years to come.
The Commando Welfare Trust has been created to support both initial emergency funding and then long term financial requirements of families in times of hardship where existing funding or grants or entitlements no longer provide support.
