We are always seeking new people to join our very special team of volunteers. Whether it’s short term or ongoing assistance you wish to provide, the RSL greatly values your time and effort. You can assist by becoming an Appeals Collector, participating in Home and Hospital Visits or helping in many other ways to make the lives of our veterans better.
Volunteer time and donations are both greatly appreciated. Every day we receive letters of gratitude and heartfelt thanks from the hundreds of people who have received financial, physical and emotional support as a result of RSL Appeals fundraising.

Help raise the much needed funds for the Appeals by becoming an Appeals Collector in your local community. One of the greatest hurdles of fundraising is finding enough people to volunteer during the Appeals. Without volunteers from the community, the ANZAC Appeal and Poppy Appeal would not be able to provide much of the financial assistance and support to our current and former service personnel and their families. Becoming an Appeals Collector is a simple and very worthwhile way of providing assistance.
Home & Hospital Visiting
This is what the RSL is all about; mates helping mates. RSL volunteers spend time with ex-service men, women and war widows to ensure those living at home, in aged care facilities or in hospitals stay connected with their community. An hour of your time will make the world of difference to the person you visit and you will be surprised by how much you get from the experience as well.
The RSL’s Home and Hospital (H&H) Visiting Program has been active for many years. The program links volunteer visitors with members of the ex-service community who are frail and/or unwell in hospital, at home or in residential aged care facilities. Recipients of visits are usually older, frailer members who value the support and continuing contact of an ex-service organisation.
H&H visitors are volunteers who have shown care and compassion toward older, isolated veterans and others, by generously offering to spend time with them. H&H are required to undergo a National Police Check for Aged Care.
If you are interested in involving your local community group, sporting club or school in fundraising activities for the ANZAC Appeal or Poppy Appeal, or you are wanting updates on RSL events which are taking place in your local community, please contact us on 5962 5017.
