Supporting Australia's most at risk soldiers

Providing emergency and long-term financial support to Special Forces 
soldiers, veterans and family members where the system cannot

Who We Are

Our Mission

The Commando Welfare Trust provides a perpetual safety net for Special Operations Command (SOCOMD) soldiers, veterans and family members.

Although there are many services available, they do not provide the level of assistance required to overcome the emotional and financial hardships these Australians invariably face. 

Given these shortfalls, our mission is to provide immediate and ongoing financial support where the system is unable to.

The Commando Welfare Trust is a registered charity with tax-deductible donations, with 100 per cent of the funds going to our beneficiaries.

Our Impact

Over the past 12 years, we have given $5 million to address the shortfalls in the lives of soldiers, veterans, wives and children who have made significant sacrifices for our country.
