How Do I become Involved?

Young Diggers provides a variety of support services and programs to help serving and ex-serving personnel of the Australian Defence Force, First Responders and Custodial Correctional Officers and their dependents.

Get Involved

Have you or a family member ever served in the Australian Defence Forces? Do you need someone on your side who will listen and to talk to? Have you or a family member ever been injured—not just physically—whilst in the service?


To become a participant, you need to be a serving member of the Australian or New Zealand Army, Navy or Air Force or Australian Emergency Services, First Responder or Custodial Correctional Officers. Alternatively, you may be an immediate family member of a serving or ex-serving man or woman who would qualify for membership as a participant.


Young Diggers relies on the generosity of our sponsors to keep this website operating. They provide us with the finances, equipment and tools to enable us to help serving and ex-serving diggers and their families. If you would like to donate or become a sponsor of Young Diggers, please fill out our sponsor form.


If you are able to donate some of your time, skills or products to Young Diggers, please let us know. We currently need help from people and businesses with the current skills: qualified dog trainers, administration assistant, graphic artist, event support, newsletter co-ordinator and goods and services.
