May snapshot of services delivered by RSL DefenceCare

The partner charity of RSL NSW and sub-Branches, RSL DefenceCare, helps Australian veterans and their families in times of injury, illness, or crisis with services free of charge. Here are some highlights of their work during May.

RSL DefenceCare can assist with submitting claims to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, or appealing rejected claims. This includes acting as an advocate at the Veterans’ Review Board.

For veterans and their partners looking for employment opportunities post-service, they provide employment support.

For veterans who are experiencing financial hardship, RSL DefenceCare can help cover the cost of bills and household essentials. If you are struggling to find a place to live, or stay in your home, they can provide housing assistance.

All services delivered by RSL DefenceCare are free of charge and are available to current and ex-serving Defence personnel, and their families.

Visit the RSL DefenceCare website to find out more or to make an enquiry.
