Taraidh Colquhoun

In May 2023, an Australian Special Forces veteran, Taraidh Colquhoun, suffered severe injuries in a mountain bike accident, which required surgery to restore a break in the C6-7 of his spine.

Taraidh is now out of the induced coma and is breathing on his own once again. There is some movement in his arms, but it appears that he may not regain the use of his legs.

Since the injury, the Commando Welfare Trust has been providing emergency support to Taraidh and his family and will continue to provide long-term assistance as they tackle the life-long challenges associated with a debilitating spinal injury.

Bree Till

On the 19th March 2009, Bree Till’s husband, Sergeant Brett Till, was killed while disarming a Taliban Improvised Explosive Device.

Brett’s death has caused many complications for Bree, the child the two shared, Ziggy, and, Brett’s older children, Jacob and Taleah, who she was taking care of.

The Commando Welfare Trust provides Bree, and the children Brett left behind, with the ongoing support needed to navigate the daily challenges associated with losing a father and a husband to war.

Krait Foundation

Along with Wandering Warriors and SAS Resources Fund, Commando Welfare Trust was a founding partner and donor of the Krait Foundation, which transitions elite military service to the private sector and helps create the next generation of business and community leaders.
