First Responders, Veterans
Accommodation and Adventures
Ulverstone – TASMANIA
To be a home away from home for military and first responders support networks, to deliver programs to help in the transition, personal development or wellness initiatives.
Due South is a self-funded organisation with our sights set on delivering world-class wellness initiatives for Veterans and First Responders.
Acting as a logistical hub, we deliver wellness initiatives specifically designed to support those brave and courageous individuals who serve our country. Due South wellness initiatives are referred to as our ‘mid-year resets’ and have been developed to support areas such as lifestyle transition, personal development and general wellbeing. mid-year resets are run between the months of May and November are proudly planned and delivered by our team of selfless, dedicated and driven volunteers.
Our executive board is represented by Navy, Army, Air-Force, First Responder personnel and as dedicated community advocates we guarantee our charity model will never include wages.
Due South operate three purposefully designed homes, and off-grid adventure property, a farm and a community hub. These properties are all located in the picturesque town of Ulverstone, on the North-West Coast of Tasmania. Ulverstone is well recognised for its military memorials and parks and we are proud to call it home.
Due South lives by the 90TEN principle, this means at least 90% of every donation we receive goes directly to our wellness initiatives and a maximum of 10% goes towards administrative and general running costs. We are setting out to set a new standard in Veteran charity work and reduce the stress on limited Government funding.
Due South is a charity designed to give back and to serve those who serve our Community and our Country with pride.
All Volunteers, No Wages – Guaranteed
Due South is supported by an exclusive enterprise agreement with Seasonal South Motel and Function Centre in Ulverstone. The Directors of seasonal South take no wages which enables Due South to run our courses and provide support where it counts.
Seasonal South Motel and Function Centre is the home of our Due South Community Hub. Our Community Hub was created through our vision to create a space that bridges the gap between First Responders, Veterans and the wider Community through enabling connection and supporting other organisations who are providing health, education and support programs.
Veterans and First Responders experience high stress careers and the transition from service can be difficult to say the least. Due South is passionate about supporting those who have bravely served in a humanitarian role or active service role, both overseas and within Australia.
Due South Veteran and First Responders Accommodation was founded on the North West Coast of Tasmania to give organisations, groups a home to deliver their programs/course to help in the transition, personal development or wellness initiatives, at no cost to the members with a self-responsibility non-entitled approach – we offer a hand-up, not a hand-out.
