Disaster Assistance

RSL NSW can connect veterans and their families to disaster assistance through RSL DefenceCare’s Disaster Assistance Fund.

In times of natural disaster such as droughts, floods and bushfires, our partner charity 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.

Applicants are encouraged to request what they need and it will be considered 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, you can call the RSL DefenceCare team on (02) 8088 0388.
