RSL Membership

Support your local RSL Sub-Branch by becoming a member

The RSL is a not-for-profit organisation that was formed to provide assistance to members of the ADF returning from  World War 1 and the modern RSL has not deviated far from its original mandate. To function as it was originally intended the RSL is reliant on the support of its Members, who are the life-blood of every Sub-Branch. By supporting the RSL, you help provide vital assistance to ADF veterans and their families at a local, state and national level. The RSL is also strongly engaged with the local community, from providing the simple gift of a home visit, to supporting a broad range of community entities such as local schools, sporting clubs and more. Most welfare activities provided by Upper Yarra RSL are delivered by our wonderful volunteers and if helping out as a volunteer is something that appeals to you, please give us a call or just pop in to the Sub-Branch.

Finally, the reward of becoming a member of the RSL is not limited to the satisfaction of knowing you’re contributing to something great, but can also entitle members to reciprocal rights within the RSL network, access to discounts on meals and drinks, the RSL exclusive Rewards & Loyalty program and the inclusion in loads of local and state wide giveaways and promotions*.
