Veterans’ Affairs

Te Tira Ahu Ika A Whiro

Tēnā koe,

We’re inviting you and your family to our Manawatū Palmerston North Veterans’ Forum. It’s an opportunity to meet with us to discuss support and service options that might be available to you.

Click here to see what a Veterans’ Affairs Forum is about.

The Manawatū Palmerston North Forum is at the Barber Hall, Central Energy Trust Arena, Waldegrave Street, Palmerston North from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, Tuesday 27 June.

As well as staff from Veterans’ Affairs, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with other organisations that might be able support you in some way. There will be over 25 organisations attending, this includes the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services’ Association, Independent Living Solutions, NZDF’s Force Financial Hub and Personnel Medals & Archives team, New Zealand Vietnam Veterans Association, Viet Nam Veterans and their Families Trust and Bay Audiology.

You can check out the full list on our website here.

This event is free to attend and refreshments will be available throughout the day, so it’s also a perfect opportunity to catch-up with old friends over a cup of tea and sausage roll.

We want to reach as many veterans with qualifying services as we can, so please tell and encourage your friends from when you were in service to come along too.

Case management clinics

When you register, you can also make an appointment to meet with a member of the Veterans’ Affairs case management team. There are limited appointments, so you can either book an in person appointment or a Zoom appointment with a case manager back in Wellington. The Zoom appointments will still take place at Barber Hall on the day of the forum.

When you register, you can select an appointment time from the available slots.

If you would like to bring a support person, just book a single appointment.
