Stakeholder Reference Group
The Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide is committed to ongoing engagement with members of veteran and Defence communities. Hearing from serving and ex-serving Defence members, their families, support people, and community organisations, is essential to the Royal Commission's inquiry.
A Stakeholder Reference Group has been established to support regular communication with key stakeholders. We use the Stakeholder Reference Group to share updates on Royal Commission progress and activities, collect feedback and discuss issues that are important to member organisations, including support needs.
The Stakeholder Reference Group is chaired by Commissioner Nick Kaldas APM and meets bi-monthly. Membership is voluntary and includes representatives from ex-service organisations and other groups with an interest in the mental health and wellbeing of the veteran and Defence communities, and the work of the Royal Commission.
The Stakeholder Reference Group is not a technical forum or decision-making body. Its focus is to facilitate ongoing engagement between key bodies representing veteran and Defence communities and the Royal Commission.
