The Veterans' Vocational Rehabilitation Service (VVRS) can be accessed by DVA clients who have entitlements under the Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986 (VEA). This scheme provides vocational support to VEA clients to assist them to return to work.

VVRS client assessments, while focussing on the client's vocational rehabilitation needs, will also identify the full range of needs the client may have. While only vocational needs can be addressed under the VVRS, clients with accepted claims under the VEA may be able to access other services provided by DVA to address broader needs identified.  Those VVRS clients with no accepted VEA claims should be encouraged to access community based services to address the non-vocational needs identified by the assessment process.
