“Those in the veteran community can rest assured that immediate support is available to help people affected by natural disasters, and at other times of need.

“The Department of Veterans’ Affairs can help access information on insurance, payments and counselling and I encourage those who have concerns to take advantage of these services,” Mr Snowdon said.
