"Excels in the Art of Self Pity" - A quote from the short film "Stutterer"
Matthew Needham as Greenwood

He left Casualty in 2009 but returned to television in 2010 to play Bezza in Sherlock and again in 2011 as David Foster in Monroe Matthew graduated from LAMDA in 2007. He has performed on stage with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal Court, National Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe.

“With the expansion, Soldier On now has the capacity for two full time psychologists working on site, more comprehensive educational programs, office space for other ex-service organisations to deliver services under the same roof, and a much greater scope for assisting many more veterans and their families.”
Prime Minister the Hon Malcolm Turnbull officially opened the expanded Robert Poate Reintegration and Recovery Centre in Canberra today, marking the start of better support for wounded Australian veterans across Australia.
Joined by Hugh and Janny, parents of the fallen soldier after whom the Centre is named, the Prime Minister announced an expansion not just to the facility, but to the support available to veterans and their families in the ACT and surrounds.
Soldier On already assists hundreds throughout the country and will be opening similar facilities across the country throughout 2016.
