Our Veterans

Direct Solutions has been providing superior rehabilitation services to DVA and the Australian Defence Force for over 10 years.

Direct Solutions offers a client-centred approach to provide tailored programmes to meet our veterans personal needs and situation. We work closely with ex-ADF personnel who have incurred an injury or illness as a result of their service. Our programs focus on the individual and include a biopsychosocial approach to maximise recovery.

Work Trials

Direct Solutions facilitates the entry into an appropriate Work Trial for our veterans. Work Trials are provided to ex-ADF members leaving the military who are not able to return to their original workplace in the Australian Defence Force.

A work trial is a valuable opportunity for veterans to;

  • Gain a recent civilian work history and referees
  • Update existing skills
  • Gain new skills
  • Test out their capacity for work
  • Become more competitive in the job seeking process
  • Gain confidence in themselves and their abilities
  • Form social relationships and expanded support networks
