Veterans Support

RSL Sub-branch Administration Office – The Bendigo District RSL has an ongoing commitment to address the needs of veterans, former and current serving soldiers and their families who may be less fortunate than others. If any member knows of another member who may be struggling to make ends meet, please notify the Welfare & Charitable Committee as we may be able to help. Do you know any member who is sick? Contact us so we can arrange a friendly visit by one of our Welfare & Charitable officers.
