Financial and Housing Assistance

Our partner charity RSL DefenceCare helps Australian veterans and their families when they are experiencing financial hardship.

Making ends meet can be especially hard if you or members of your family suffer illness, injury or other changes in circumstances. There are a range of ways in which RSL DefenceCare can support you financially.

Through a partnership with the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS), RSL DefenceCare can also assist veterans who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of becoming homeless.

Eligible veterans can receive assistance to find a rental property, rent subsidies, apply for a lease, or gain skills and opportunities to support greater financial independence.
