Message from Rob Manton, Director, Veterans SA
Veterans SA Reorganisation
Many would have seen a recent article in the Advertiser Newspaper regarding the transfer of Veterans SA from the Department of the Premier and Cabinet to Defence SA. The transfer is part of some minor Machinery of Government changes designed to more effectively and efficiently deliver services across government.
This restructure will offer the opportunity for Veterans SA to better leverage South Australia’s defence industry, through Defence SA, for the benefit of the veteran community while capitalising on the natural synergies that exist between the veteran and defence communities.
The Premier will retain responsibility for the Veterans’ Affairs portfolio and remains determined that the government should offer seamless service delivery for veterans across government departments.
Veterans SA will remain a discrete Agency with administrative support provided by Defence SA instead of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet. The Agency will physically relocate to Defence SA offices at Level 4, 151 Pirie Street, Adelaide, by the end of June.
I wish to assure all veterans, their families and carers that Veterans SA staff will continue to work tirelessly to ensure the needs of South Australia’s veteran community are met.
