No Duff provides immediate & less-urgent support to Veterans (being current and former service people) and their families.
No Duff Charitable Trust is an independent, nationwide organisation that supports current and former Defence personnel (and their families) by providing a 24/7 crisis response capability, peer-to-peer support, or facilitation to / delivery of a range of other support services. The Trust also works closely alongside other organisations that can provider longer-term support to Veterans and their families in need.
The best person to assist a Veteran is another Veteran - someone who can understand the unique challenges faced by service personnel and their families. The general public and even people within other Veterans' support organisations often simply do not fully understand the issues that they face, or are unable to speak the unique language.
As at March 2019 No Duff has responded to 280 different situations that have included urgent and non-urgent tasks, some straightforward and some very complex (long-term and with multiple agencies involved to ensure the individuals received the required care and assistance). The scale of No Duff’s activities has increased significantly from its inception, with the number of responses to requests for assistance far exceeding original expectations.
More about us
No Duff is to provide immediate welfare support to members of the NZDF past and present, particularly veterans, in order to ensure that the mental, physical, and social health of all members is maintained at the highest possible level.
Use of funds
No Duff will remain a primarily volunteer based organisation, and continue to heavily rely on our volunteer network for as much input as possible in carrying its activities.
This is to help ensure all funds are applied for maximum effect in terms of the Trust’s charitable purposes.
Its been a great month.
No Duff marched in the Pride Parade to show that it does not matter who you are, if you have served we WILL support you!
