Commando Welfare Trust
Whilst the Departments of Defence and Veteran Affairs have established processes to cover initial financial responses to the death or serious injury of Special Operations Command (SOCOMD) personnel, these tragic events invariably cause hardship for many years to come.
The Commando Welfare Trust is not an official Army entity. It has been created outside of the ADF to support both initial emergency funding and then long term financial requirements of families in times of hardship where existing funding or grants or entitlements no longer provide support.
The trust supports the families of the 1st Commando Regiment, the 2nd Commando Regiment, Special Operations Logistics Squadron (SOLS) and Incident Response Regiment (IRR) members who have died or sustained serious injury in the service of the nation.
