12.1 Overview of the VVRS

The Veterans' Vocational Rehabilitation Scheme (VVRS) is a free and voluntary rehabilitation program that assists eligible veterans to find or retain employment. The assistance provided includes vocational support such as vocational assessments and interview skills training. The Scheme also offers medical management and psychosocial services to address barriers in other parts of a veteran’s life preventing his or her retention of, or return to, employment.
