The partnership will build on the organisations’ existing relationship to further support Soldier On and enable current and ex-serving veterans and their families to thrive.
In partnering with Sky News, Soldier On will receive the additional support needed to increase awareness of its life-changing support services to more members of the Defence and veteran communities as well as the Australian public.
The partnership will also provide an important avenue for the promotion of veterans’ affairs and encourage conversation across the nation.
“Soldier On is thrilled to welcome Sky News as an official media partner. Sky News has been an active supporter of the veteran community and Soldier On for many years and we look forward to collaborating further through this significant partnership,” Soldier On CEO, Ivan Slavich, said.
“With this partnership, Soldier On will not only be able to enhance the delivery of its support services, but also enhance the national conversation of prominent veterans’ affairs, bringing greater awareness and acknowledgement of the sacrifices made by our service personnel and their families, their struggles and their triumphs,” Slavich added.
“At Sky News, we recognise the varied experiences of our service personnel and acknowledge the need for greater support services for veterans and their families. In partnering with Soldier On, we hope to enable more veterans and their families to thrive with positive and impactful assistance in all aspects of their lives,” Sky News Australia, Chief Executive Officer Paul Whittaker, said.
“We are proud to be partnering with Soldier On and will continue to shine a light on the issues facing our veteran community to encourage important national conversations and meaningful outcomes.”
