Thankyou for your interest in volunteering with the Bendigo RSL.
We welcome new people to join our dedicated volunteer team at Bendigo.
Veteran Support volunteers provide well-being support to veterans and their families and may undertake a number of roles including:-
- Hospital & Home Visitation
- Veteran Transport
- Welfare Officers
- Pensions Officers
- Other Veterans Support Activities
Most veteran support roles require volunteers to undergo a National Police Check for Aged Care. Some Veterans Support roles such as Pensions Officers and Welfare Officers also require volunteers to undergo specialized accredited training to enable them to undertake their duties. At Bendigo RSL, we fully support interested volunteers to become accredited.
Volunteer roles at Bendigo RSL mainly centre on fundraising through selling badges just before ANZAC DAY and selling poppies prior to REMEMBRANCE DAY.
Sellers generally follow a roster and “set up shop” at larger shopping centres and other outlets around Bendigo. Our Appeals Officer may also require assistance to assemble, pack and deliver merchandise trays to local schools and businesses before and after collect the proceeds and stock balances directly after our Appeals.
For ANZAC DAY and REMEMBRANCE DAY our volunteers may be called on to assist at our annual commemoration services and Bendigo RSL has an extremely popular ANZAC ceremony designed just for local primary, secondary and special schools as we see educating younger generations as a vital task in supporting our community. Additionally our Memorabilia Officer is always looking to add to his volunteer guide list.
We are always seeking people who can freely offer their time, trade or professional qualifications to assist us to make Bendigo RSL a better veterans support and community place to enjoy.
