Help Us Support Our First Responders
Help us extend our support to our emergency response community!

Fortem Australia is a not-for-profit organisation who supports those who protect and defend our communities.  Fortem delivers evidence-informed, community-based health and wellbeing support programs specifically designed to address the unique challenges faced by the national security and emergency response community.

Fortem Australia will initially support the national security and law enforcement communities of Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney as part of a two year pilot program funded by the Commonwealth Government.  Services will be rolled out to Australia’s emergency service and first-responder communities as funding permits.

Help us extend our support to include a test program for our First Responders in the Australian Capital Territory.

​​​​​​​Fortem will connect with the national security and first responder communities to have a positive impact on their overall wellbeing.
