Albion Park RSL Sub Branch Welfare

Our members are always ready to help out with the welfare of fellow veterans and their families. We meet monthly and also plan and conduct various social activities, such as fundraising within the community and group visits to local military attractions. Many veterans miss the camaraderie that service life gave them and seek social activities and friends to talk to. We encourage the local community to refer anyone like this onto us, encourage them to see us or contact us if you think that we can assist in any way. Even if the member has never joined the RSL, or doesn’t want to it does not matter. We are here for the whole veteran community, including their families. Go to our Contact Us Page for further information on contacting the Sub Branch.
