Engaging veterans and their families on the Development Project is a key priority.

As part of the gallery development consultation program, we are hosting specific engagement sessions for Australian veterans, veteran groups, and Defence families. This approach will be critical to informing the content of new exhibitions and displays.

We are committed to ensuring the Development Project provides direct employment and opportunities for veteran-owned businesses. Contractors seeking major construction contracts with the Memorial are required to detail a “Veterans’ Engagement Approach” as part of the expression of interest and tender process. The Memorial is also working to identify veteran-owned businesses to ensure that they are given the opportunity to bid for sub-contracted work on the project.
