Who We Are

Mates4Mates supports current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) members who have suffered physical or psychological wounds, injuries or illnesses as a result of their service, either in Australia or overseas.

We provide holistic physical and psychological rehabilitation programs for these Mates and their families.

At our centres in Brisbane, Townsville and Hobart we offer the following services:

"I will go in to Mates4Mates. I don’t need to justify who I am or where I’ve been or what I’ve done. I don’t need to worry about being judged. I can just chat to the boys. We get into a workout and get on with the job. It’s that kind of environment that has helped me back on track. It’s given me goals to work towards, and that’s exactly what I needed."
- Brave Mate, on how Mates4Mates changed his future

Mates4Mates evokes the Australian spirit, that a True Mate offers unwavering loyalty and friendship even in our darkest hour. Our organisation ensures that current and ex-serving men and women are not without the trust, humility and strength of mateship in times of need.

We aim to complement and enhance the capability of the ADF to support their current and ex-serving personnel and their families. Mates4Mates is independent, apolitical and non-religious.
