'Journey to 2030' Strategic Plan

It has been 10 years since RSL Queensland established Mates4Mates to help address the significant health and wellbeing challenges faced by some Australian Defence Force community members.  

Over that time, we have drawn on our values of integrity, innovation, compassion and collaboration to improve the mental health, physical health, wellbeing and social connections of veterans and their families impacted by their service. 

In 2023, Mates4Mates is moving forward with a clear focus on the core health and wellbeing of veterans and their families through the launch of the ‘Journey to 2030’ Strategic Plan

Our ‘Journey to 2030’ Strategic Plan gives Mates4Mates defined strategic objectives with a clear motivation on Service Excellence, where we will focus on high quality, evidence based and inclusive services; Growth and Sustainability will see us expand services based on need and responsible use of resources; and finally, Collaboration and Connection with aligned partners and an ongoing investment in our staff.  

In developing this strategic plan, we have reviewed our political, economic, social, technological, legal, and environmental circumstances. We have listened to our clients, to their families, and to the statements made to the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide. 

As we move forward, it’s important to us that we continue to support our clients and their families. We embrace the opportunity to support the Defence family to 2030 and beyond.
