ANZAC House Trust (the Trust) is a charitable trust which was set up in 1949 for the purposes of establishing and maintaining ANZAC House, and for carrying out the charitable objects of RSL NSW.

The public member positions are currently vacant, and the Trustee is looking to appoint 3 people to fill these vacancies in a volunteer capacity.

In the short to medium term, the Trust is working to procure a new ‘ANZAC House’ premises in accordance with the objects of the Trust Deed.

The Trustee is seeking expressions of interest from eligible people to join the Board as ‘Public Members’ and work with the Board and Trustee in this process.
