Veterans affairs secretariat
The Veterans affairs secretariat (VAS) supports the Minister for Veterans in his capacity as chair of the Veterans Forum, Plenary Forum and Task Force by providing him with a full range of policy development and secretariat services. It supports his objective to be government champion for veterans concerns, with the aim of improving Veterans opinion that the Government continues to care for service personnel once they have left. The VAS responsibilities include:
- The development and implementation of a cross-government action plan that will raise the profile of veterans, particularly the most vulnerable.
- Co-ordinating the activities of the work streams in a manner consistent with the agenda and timetable set by the Veterans Task Force.
