Disaster Assistance

RSL NSW provides disaster assistance through RSL DefenceCare’s Disaster Assistance Fund.

In times of natural disaster such as droughts, floods and bushfires, RSL DefenceCare can help veterans and their families who have been affected with things like paying bills or replacing essential items that are not covered by insurance.

This assistance is initially limited, however increased assistance may be available depending on the circumstances.

We encourage applicants to request what they need and we’ll consider all applications on a case by case basis.

To request financial assistance in times of natural disasters, contact RSL DefenceCare to find out more or complete a disaster assistance application. If you’d like to have a confidential discussion about your options during a time of crisis, please call (02) 8088 0388.
