What can we do for you?

The Oasis Townsville recognises that to appreciate an individual's needs is seldom straightforward. There are generally at least several of the 10 Human Needs interacting. 

Our Wellbeing Navigators can step you through the 10 Human Needs and identify which ones are impacting your situation. These Wellbeing Navigators will then utilise our comprehensive Service Directory to refer you and your family if applicable to the best services available in Townsville. We are also developing a network of like organisations around Australia and may be able to refer you to one of them for similar help in a different location around Australia. 

There are a few needs we can fulfil at The Oasis Townsville. We have found, where the service need for the benefit of the veteran community is in limited supply or the quality is not as high as we need, we will attempt to bring it in-house. Compensation Advocacy is an example. If our Wellbeing Navigators see your need for compensation advocacy in order to ensure appropriate compensation, we can refer in-house. Some of our advocates are actually both wellbeing and compensation advocates. We also conduct our own in-house assistance dog program (Hounds 4 Healing) 

 
Have you already been for your first appointment with an Advocate at The Oasis Townsville?

If you have already been accepted onto our Wellbeing Program, having completed at least the first face-to-face interview with a Wellbeing Navigator at The Oasis Townsville, then it would be best to call to make another appointment, if we don't contact you first. You'll hear from us regularly, or when needed, we will get in touch sooner, for the next steps in the process.

Wellbeing phone is answered during office hours 0900h to 1500h Weekdays (less public holidays) - 0432 597 864

New to our Wellbeing Program?

If you have not yet been accepted into our Wellbeing Program, we need to gather some information and organise your first appointment.

Please click the button below and complete the form. When you have submitted the form you'll get a call to make your first appointment. 

 

We need this information to establish the urgency and complexity of the case and the best fit for our Case Managers.

Forms to complete at the first meeting. At the first meeting you will be asked to complete and sign a few forms also to make the process smoother:
 

  • Consent to Collect Information. Advocates need to collect personal information to establish your needs so that they can provide the most appropriate and best service possible.

  • Consent to Release Information. This allows advocates to pass necessary personal information to other agencies and individuals for the purpose of supporting your claims.

  • Authority to Act. This form allows an advocate to act on your behalf so that the process is not slowed every time a question is asked for which your advocate knows the answer, and with this form can act on your behalf and in your best interest. (see separate forms for CSC and DVA, below)

  • Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation - Third Party Authority form. This is required by CSC for them to acknowledge that an advocate may access your personal superannuation entitlement information and act on your behalf. 

  • Authorise a Representative. This form authorises the advocate to act on your behalf when dealing with DVA. 

​This will save time in processing and, if appropriate, also give you the best possible chance of having your condition accepted through the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) in the shortest possible time.
