Australia

OVERWATCH AUSTRALIA is a not for profit organisation tasked with reaching out and assisting former Australian Defence Force (ADF) members.

OVERWATCH AUSTRALIA is a peer to peer, boots on the ground, first response organisation formed to assist former ADF members who are at risk or in crisis. Once engaged, OVERWATCH AUSTRALIA will then act as a bridge to other Ex Services Organisations (ESOs) better equipped to help with the needs of these personnel.

All OVERWATCH AUSTRALIA first responders are former or current serving members of the ADF. We strive for peer to peer support, Navy to Navy, Air Force to Air Force, Army to Army. We are one of very few organisations that actively communicate with former ADF members and provide assistance when in crisis rather than waiting for them to come to us.

OUR MISSION
Through dynamic proactive monitoring and outreach OVERWATCH
AUSTRALIA will provide first line boots on the ground assistance to any former member of the ADF.

HOW DO WE OPERATE?
OVERWATCH AUSTRALIA mirrors an Infantry Battalions Radio Net using the social media platform Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/OverwatchAustralia). Overwatch Australia utilises a peer to peer support model in that wherever possible we strive to match Service/Corps/Gender interaction with the people we help.

To help facilitate the peer to peer support the umbrella Overwatch Australia organisation is split into individual Service/Corps pages on Facebook all linked to the Overwatch Australia Task Force page for ease of two way flow of information.

Each individual page has a number of National Coordinators, State Response Coordinators (SRC) and Page Admins that are also members of the Task Force page. The pages also have First Responders (FR) and Observers (OBS) that assist with the Overwatch mission.
