What does Invictus Australia do?
We support and encourage former-serving and serving members of the Defence community and their families as they connect and engage with their communities through the power of sport, at a grassroots level or internationally, to assist with recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration, or to proactively manage wellbeing. We do this by bringing together sporting, community and veteran organisations to break down the barriers to sport participation for all veterans and their families. Invictus Australia works as a peak body to develop a strong and connected system of sporting programs and opportunities, aiming to unlock many of the 70,000 sport clubs across 97 recognised sports in Australia. As well as promoting the physical, social and emotional benefits of sport, we shine a light on the unique needs of younger veterans and the challenges they face as they transition from military to civilian life.
