taking care of those who serve
Newcastle Beacon brings together a network of organisations, professionals and volunteers with the common goal of supporting first responders, emergency department personnel, veterans and their families in Newcastle and the Hunter.
“While there are a lot of services for veterans and former officers, they are difficult to navigate alone. Newcastle Beacon lets people know what is available, helps fill out forms and maintains contact with services.”
“Sometimes employees find it difficult to trust mental health help offered by the workplace. They worry about how much people are going to know. Newcastle Beacon offers neutral ground.”
If you or someone you know needs immediate assistance you can contact these 24/7 crisis services.
