The NAMBUS is a former Sydney city bus donated to our association by the New South Wales Government so we can travel to schools in and around the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle regions, where we speak to Year 10 students about Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War. The NAMBUS is a 1979 Mercedes Benz Mk III city bus, which was converted into a mobile museum for use by our veterans. It was painted at the Bankstown TAFE and fitted out by students from Newcastle TAFE with display cabinets showing many artifacts and adorned with photographs of Australian servicemen and women in Vietnam. As well as an excellent diorama of the Cu Chi tunnels the bus contains display boards showing many other photographs of military personnel ‘at work’, together with additional military paraphernalia of the Australian conscription process and the Vietnam war, giving the students a sound understanding of the Australian servicemen and women's involvement in the Vietnam War for their modern history studies. The vehicle is owned and operated by the Vietnam Veterans’, Peacekeepers’ & Peacemakers’ Association of Australia, Central Coast Sub-Branch Inc.

The role of the Family Referral Service is to assist vulnerable children, young people and families who do not meet the statutory threshold of “risk of significant harm” to access specific and appropriate support services in their local area. The intent is to prevent a difficult situation that a family, young person or child may be experiencing from escalating to a crisis requiring a statutory response from the child protection system. We have Child and Family Practitioners ready to engage with families and get them supported regarding any issue they may be experiencing (parenting issues, family breakdown, family violence, mental health, homelessness or health problems to name a few). The Family Referral Service on the Central Coast is run by the Benevolent Society. The Benevolent Society has been supporting people with disabilities, children, families, older Australians and carers since 1813 (as Australia’s first charity). It is not-for-profit and non-religious. To access our service call our intake line on 1300 006 480. Our service is free and voluntary. On the day we have an intake worker, a child and family practitioner and our housing worker ready to chat and answer any questions and to play some games with the kids.
