Veterans can benefit from a new, three year partnership between Soldier On and Fujitsu Australia whereby the veteran support organisation will receive funding for improved IT, set up and assistance.
The organisation said that more than 200 veterans and family members visit the Robert Poate Centre run by Soldier On in Canberra and the injection of technology will see the Soldier On team work more effectively and assist more veterans.
Reintegration and recovery manager in the ACT, Robert Pickersgill said the assistance will better care for those who are seeking help.
“The funding means rather than spending vital funds on IT, we can now fund support for wounded men and women instead, which is a great outcome for all involved. We have been working with limited connectivity and struggling with outdated equipment, so to have this support from Fujitsu Australia really makes a difference on the ground.”
Fujitsu Australia chief executive, Mike Foster, said his company was proud to be supporting the cause.
"Through our long-term relationship with the Department of Defence we have experienced first-hand the important role that Defence personnel play for our country. We are proud to be supporting this worthy cause, which will give our staff the opportunity to participate in activities that will make a difference to our veterans.”
