Strategies that SA Health will undertake in response to the future health service needs of veterans and their families
The Veteran Wellbeing Centre delivers health and wellbeing services to veterans and their families, including advocacy, education, skills and employment, and housing and accommodation support.
The Centre provides a safe and welcoming environment in which veterans and their families can access services and feel confident in seeking the support they need to improve their health and wellbeing.
Four well-established veteran organisations have been selected as 'anchor tenants' at the Centre.
These organisations deliver accredited veteran wellbeing and compensation advocacy services; mental health assessment and clinical counselling; employment, education and social connection programs and health and wellbeing services.
The Centre and its services are available to all current and former serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and reservists, and their families and carers.
Walk-ins are welcome but most services are appointment-based. Veterans and their families should continue to contact each of the four anchor tenants directly to arrange services and make appointments.
Access to the Centre is available 9.00 am to 4.00 pm, Monday to Friday from Building 37, Repat Health Precinct, 216 Daws Road, Daw Park SA 5041

The Veteran Wellbeing Centre sits within a broader Veterans’ Precinct at the Repat site, along with the Repat Chapel, Remembrance Gardens, Museum and SPF Hall. These are protected and preserved as community assets, acknowledging the history of the Repat.
The refurbished SPF Hall provides veterans and the veteran community with a unique, historically significant, and dedicated group meeting space that can accommodate large groups of people for a large range of activities, including presentations, seminars, workshops, group therapy sessions, community development activities and other events.
A Town Square in the heart of the Repat Health Precinct provides a focal point, connecting services through a central hub, providing a space for play, interaction, or contemplation. This green space is enjoyed by veterans and their families, patrons of the Repat Health Precinct and the public.
See the site map below for the location of the Centre and the public parking available.
