Veterans’ Families Social Connection Needs Survey

At Mates4Mates, it’s important to us that we support all members of the veteran community through the services that we provide.

To help Mates4Mates better understand the needs of veterans’ families, especially in the area of social support and community connection, we are conducting a short survey and inviting veterans’ families* to complete this.

The feedback provided in this survey will help Mates4Mates identify any gaps in the wellbeing-needs of veterans’ families and improve our future services accordingly.

This survey is anonymous, and personal, identifiable details will not be collected.

This survey will close on Monday, 30 October 2023.

Information collected will be used to evaluate our Mates4Mates services. All information collected (including personal information) will be handled in accordance with the privacy collection notice here and the Mates4Mates Privacy Policy. From time to time, deidentified and aggregated information will also be provided to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and by completing this survey you are consenting to this disclosure.
