Royal Australian Infidel

RA Infidel are a veteran owned business and longtime supporters of V360 Australia Ltd.

With a great merchandise business and incredible social media following, RAInfidel are providing support through connectivity to many veterans as well as linking our ex-service community with those who have never served.

RAInfidel’s support is not limited to simply sharing our posts. While that has gained us great exposure, they also contribute to our mission of housing homeless and vulnerable veterans in the form of cash donations. For every 1,000 new likes on the RAInfidel Facebook page they donate $100.00.

This is the sort of connectivity that brings all walks of the community together and provides positive business models that we hope other organisations and groups present in their services and providers. We salute RAInfidel and proudly support their efforts towards their dedication of the Australian Defence Force.

Smithfield RSL Club Ltd

Smithfield RSL Club Limited (NSW) is the first RSL affiliate to provide financial support to V360 Australia Ltd. A recent $4,000 donation (September 2016), was immediately put to good use and assisted us to transport a young veteran from NSW to QLD. With our newly formed partnership we expect that great things will be achieved in the coming months and years.

In December 2016 the Board of Smithfield RSL Club Ltd granted a further $5,000 to fund our 1800 and associated mobile services. This grant has enabled us to pay in advance all our communications needs for this vital service up and until December 2017.

Thank You for your Service

Rick Stubbs started this business in order to sell merchandise honouring the veteran in people’s lives. His idea was to support charities such as V360A with the profits. We have been grateful to receive donations from Rick, including merchandise to sell in our online store. Small initiatives such as this can deliver so much hope and support to those we are honoured to assist.

Shane Kempton Australasian CEO (ex-Army)

Shane has been a big supporter of V360A and for the past year has provided mentoring support to our CEO Jay across a variety of areas. Coming from a military family and having served himself – including time working with the Australian Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) – Shane has first-hand experience with our returning defence personnel and some of the challenges they face transitioning back into the civilian community. He has also led another ex-service organisation with a similar mission of returning our Heroes to a normal civilian life. Shane believes the synergy between Professionals and V360A’s mission to ensure no Australian veteran lives with homelessness is of vital importance.

Hotel Northbridge

Hotel Northbridge is a unique heritage-listed property steeped in history, originally built in 1898. The hotel was established during the boom of the gold prospecting era with proceeds from the discovery of one of Western Australia’s largest gold nuggets named the ‘Golden Eagle’.

In 2015 we brokered a discounted room rate for veterans in need of crisis accommodation in the Perth area. This budget accommodation allows us to place a veteran into a single room 24-hours a day on any day of the year, which provides for safe, secure and immediate accommodation options for anyone we find sleeping rough or in need of crisis care.

Matilda Poppy

Matilda Poppy a celebration of Life, Pride, Respect and Service

The Red Poppy flowers message is… To remember those who have passed away, to honour those we have lost and protect the memories of all that we love. It remembers the fallen and encourages the development  of our own sense of inner peace.

The  Matilda (Orange) Poppy is to be held in honour, acknowledgement and respect for all our living ADF and veterans’ past, present and future… It is the cultivation of the belief for a richer life in which to be proud.

The “Matilda Poppy” is a gift of thanks to those who have sacrificed selflessly in service of their country, its people and for those they love. It is a repayment of understanding and can be given as a gesture of heartfelt sincerity or worn by the buyer as a show of respect for those who served past and present.

A Matilda Poppy will represent all that we as Australians believe in, mateship, camaraderie, respect, and strength, it is to show  your acknowledgment and gratitude to all those who serve.

The Orange of the “Matilda Poppy” is the closest match to the shade of the sun, so it is symbolic of Australian military service and illuminates expansion, friendship and community. If one could capture and concentrate the sun in a flower, the result would be bright, luminous orange flowers. Orange in flowers offer happiness and joy and to look upon an orange flower is to immediately feel the warmth of love.

Matilda Poppy splits profits with the Australian Peacekeepers and Peacemakers Veterans Association (APPVA) and V360 Australia Ltd. We are honoured and proud to be partnered with this awesome business who assist us to provide solutions for veteran homelessness.

Matilda Poppy is a veteran owned business.

Carry On (Victoria)

‘Lest We Forget The Living’

When a small group of ex-serviceman met in Melbourne on 12 July 1932 to form what was later named the Carry On Club, they could scarcely have imagined that their group would still be flourishing during the next century, celebrating 80 years in 2012.

The history of Carry on both explains the reasons for the success of the Club and provides much interesting and very human material about its leaders and its activities.

The emphasis on direct and hands on involvement of its members and the decision to keep the organisation small were critical to the success achieved. When there was less need for direct assistance, the Club showed its flexibility by altering its focus and their dependants.

When veterans are located by the V360A Outreach Team in Victoria, Carry On are the first  accommodation provider we call. With more than one-hundred home units situated around the State, Colin Wardrop (Executive Officer), is always willing to assist with accommodation no matter the time or the day that needs presents.
