How We Started
Guitars for Veterans Australia (G4VA) is an ACNC not-for-profit charity organization founded in 2017. Our team works to help and assist Australian veterans and former Australian Defence Force (ADF) members experiencing the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) through the power of music. We have many testimonials from veterans that have found the introduction of music into their lives has greatly improved their mental health and outlook to life.
What We Do
We assist those that served in the ADF by seeking donations of used or new guitars, together with financial support for lessons. G4VA co-ordinates veterans and delivers a structured professional guitar training program of 10 lessons together with a guitar. We also host and present at various events throughout the year to showcase music and also where veterans can socialize and play music in a supportive environment.
