Over 1,383,000 Australians have served in conflicts overseas.
5,000 service personnel discharge every year.
46% of veterans who left the ADF experienced a mental disorder within five years.
For over 100 years, the RSLWA has been here.
Founded by veterans, for veterans, and still run by veterans today.
RSLWA has continuously provided camaraderie and assistance to those returned from service for well over one hundred years.
Founded to support veterans and their families, the core mission has never changed but has continued to grow and evolve as the needs of each generation changed. From young and old, ex-serving to current, male and female alike, the RSLWA is here to assist.
Our branch network across the state allows for assistance to be given to any veteran in need. Member or not, a warm welcome is always waiting.
“In the days and weeks leading up to Remembrance Day, when I see someone wearing a poppy, I’m extremely grateful because I know that their money’s gone towards helping people like myself and other ex-serving men and women in need.” – Joel, wheelchair bound Army veteran.
