OVERVIEW OF ASSOCIATION
To provide support, comfort and camaraderie to ex servicemen and women who suffer permanent disabilities as a result of service in Australia's defence forces and to extend support to the community, schools, families and carers.
The first Association for Totally and Permanently Incapacitated ex-service personnel (TPI's) was founded in Victoria in 1926 to provide assistance and support to the vast number of WW1 soldiers who received permanent disabilities due to their war service. The mission and ideals of the original association have been passed on, through successive organisations Australia wide, to those ex service personnel affected by their defence service up to the present day.
Our organisation was established in 1950 as the Townsville sub-branch of the TPI Soldiers Association. In 2003 we withdrew from the TPI Soldiers Association and changed our name to The Totally and Permanently Disabled Ex-servicepersons Association (Townsville) Incorporated in order to extend membership to all eligible ex servicemen and women. We are now an independent not-for-profit body with a current membership of approximately 500.
As part of our management responsibility we include training and review programmes to ensure our committee members and welfare practitioners are informed on current strategies that support our role within the community. We also maintain close links with other ex service organisations, the general community, community groups and service and health providers that share information and support.
Our welfare agenda includes the following support services:
Our geographical coverage is the North Queensland region with affiliation at national and state level.
