A Program To Help Veterans, Their Widows And Carers.
Beyond Disability has joined forces with Dandenong/Cranbourne RSL Welfare to help VETS with PTSD.
To help veterans to get in touch with fellow servicemen, Beyond Disability (BDI) has a Vets communication program using internet programs like Skype.
To qualify you must have a service number, be the widow or carer of a serviceman.
The RSL will try to arrange a fellow serviceman or widow to help train you.
BDI provides its own laptops and wireless broadband. You do not have to buy these things.
We own the equipment and fix or replace it when necessary.
BDI can provide voice activated laptops for those who can speak clearly but cannot use their hands.
You only pay $11 a month program fee if you have your own broadband.
If you do not have your own broadband BDI subsidises the broadband cost.
For the laptop and broadband full package total fees are $23 a month
This volunteer Beyond Disability program is directed at those suffering isolation, PTSD or widows and carers who have lost contact with former friends.
If you have an RSL buddy you served with who could be your volunteer that would be a big help to you. Just try Skype. It is a brilliant online way to see your mates online and share a joke and beer with them right in front of you on the screen.
