The ADF Veterans Program uses the power of sport to enhance health and wellbeing outcomes for Australian Defence Force Veterans while establishing community connections.

The program is designed to support recently discharged Veteran’s transition back into civilian life and find their purpose and identity away from the ADF.

In doing so, the program draws upon similarities between the transition of ADF Veterans and AFL athletes providing the opportunity to share experiences and support.

Along with health and wellbeing outcomes, the program provides an opportunity for ADF veterans to connect and build relationships and support services.

Sessions are delivered by Power Community Limited staff, past and current Port Adelaide Football Club players, coaches and high-performance staff along with current Ambassadors of the club.

As an extension to the six- week program, participants are invited to attend Port Adelaide Football Club home games at Adelaide Oval to support with strengthening connections and building positive relationships.
