Built pledges to support veterans with Soldier On

Built is proud to be a Gold Pledge Partner of Soldier On, helping to enable veterans and their families to thrive. The Soldier On Pledge partnership provides a pathway for veterans and their families transitioning from the Australian Defence Force into civilian life.

The Pledge allows organisations to thank Australian Defence Force Personnel for their service and recognise the exemplary skills, leadership and training of those who have served Australia. Organisations that sign the Pledge commit to learning more about the skills and attributes that Defence personnel, veterans, and family members can bring to their organisation.

Soldier On is a not-for-profit veteran support organisation delivering a range of services to enable current and ex-serving veterans and their families to thrive. It is Australia’s only national fully integrated and holistic support services provider for our national service personnel and their families. Soldier On currently reaches more than one million Australian veterans and their families.

Soldier On’s services include a range of mental health and wellbeing, employment support and education programs, as well as activities focused on connections with family, friends, and the broader community.

In March 2022, Built was proud to have our team participate in the March On Challenge, as just one of the ways we support Soldier On. The challenge has teams walking a total of 96km in the month of March – the equivalent of the Kokoda Track to raise funds for Soldier On.

“Supporting veterans and their families is something Built is very proud of. With both personal and community connections to serving and ex-serving Defence personnel, it’s great to see so many colleagues sign up and take on this challenge,” said Josh Whittaker, General Manager, NSW Fitout and Refurbishment.

The more organisations that come on board by signing the Pledge and supporting the veteran community, the greater the impact. We are building a stronger Australia together – for every organisation that signs the Soldier On Pledge, we are one step further to enabling more veterans and their families to secure their future.”
