COMMEMORATIVE AND ADMINISTRATIVE CALENDAR
National Register of Veteran and Veteran Family Issues
The Veteran Sentiment Index (VSI) is a valuable tool that captures the collective sentiment of veterans and their families regarding their relationship with DVA.
By regularly collecting and analyzing this data, we can track changes in sentiment over time, identify trends, and make informed decisions to better serve the veteran community. The ultimate goal is to use this feedback to improve and enhance the services we provide, ensuring we meet the needs and expectations of the veterans and their families.
National Register of Advocate Issues
The national register of wellbeing support officers' and advocates' issues are raised by all affiliate organisations we work with. We pass the issues on to advocate regional managers and then work with DVA to follow their progress until they are resolved.
It is important that these issues are transparent because that promotes accountability and visibility across the veteran and veteran family community.
