Soldiers in Residence

 Australian Army Officer, Major Stuart Jones, Australian Army Soldiers PTE David Nicolson and CPL Thomas Quirke are the latest members from the Defence Force to take part in the Soldiers in Residence at the Australian War Memorial
Soldiers in Residence is a partnership program between the Australian Army and the Australian War Memorial (AWM) for wounded injured or ill Army members.

Soldiers in Residence program offers a three week opportunity for wounded, injured or ill Army members to participate in a range of activities at the AWM, learning about the front and back of house operations. Some of the activities involved in the program include working with AWM collections, the research centre, exhibitions and educating school students on tours through the galleries.

Two rotations will be held at the AWM in 2017. The first rotation concluded on 22 September 2017. The next Soldiers in Residence rotation will run from 6- 24 November 2017, offering an opportunity for participants to gain new skills, and share unique experiences to aid their rehabilitation and recovery. 

Serving Army members interested in the Soldiers in Residence program can email the Army Support to Wounded Injured and Ill Program team at: army-swiip [at] defence.gov.au (A – SWIIP)

Nominations for the next rotation are due by 10 October 2017.
