Defence Bank Foundation

The Defence Bank Foundation is an independent charity established to help injured, wounded and disadvantaged serving and former Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and their families.

How we help

All funds raised are used to run The Defence Community Dog's program - a program that provides Assistance Dogs to veterans suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and related conditions.

The Defence Community Dogs program is a specialised Dog Training program which rescues abandoned dogs and trains them through Correctional Facilities to assist Veterans.  The Assistance Dogs are provided to veterans at no cost. It is a unique WIN:WIN:WIN program which gives dogs, inmates and veterans a second chance at life.
