These luncheons are held specifically for the purpose of getting socially isolated veterans together for a social outing with like minded people.  The criteria for eligibility to attend a Diggers Lunch is as follows:

The person must be:

  • ex-service;
  • visited by one of our Support Officers; and
  • virtually immobile, do not or are unable to get out and about and mix with other ex-service persons.

Please feel free to contact our Welfare Coordinator, Carol Edwards, if you (or if you know a veteran) would appreciate a visit by one of our Support Officers.  We can then advise further about Diggers Luncheons and organise transport to attend (including your approved carer) if required.
