Visit Mates4Mates in Ipswich.
Whether you need a coffee and a chat, access to support and rehabilitation services, or you just want to meet others who understand what you’re going through, you’re welcome at Mates4Mates.
At Mates4Mates you’ll find a community of like-minded current and ex-serving Defence Force members who have been impacted by service, and their families. Our staff and Mates understand what you’re going through and are here to help – with no judgements or expectations.
The Mates4Mates Ipswich Centre includes clinical services, a gym, a veterans’ lounge, as well as a space for social connection activities.
To book an appointment with one of our psychologists or exercise physiologists, you will need a Medicare or DVA referral from your GP. Appointments can also be made with our counsellors.
For all other services, you will need to join Mates4Mates by filling out our new client form. Once you have joined, you are welcome to come and go as you need for appointments, programs and social connection activities. Activities are also run in surrounding regions including Toowoomba.
The centre is open from 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Talk with our staff about activities which may occur outside of regular opening hours.
Veterans can also join the Mates4Mates Ipswich & Toowoomba Facebook Group to stay up to date with what’s happening each week.
