The Ron workman OAM Veterans’ Support Centre

The Veterans’ Support Centre provides professional advice and assistance to veterans, serving members, ex-members of the Defence Forces and their dependents, seeking to obtain entitlements under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 as Amended (VEA), the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act (MRCA) and the Defence Related Claims Act (DRCA).

We do this in accordance with the Mission, Role and Objectives of the National RSL. The considerable expenses associated with maintaining the office are kindly met by the Currumbin Palm Beach RSL Sub-branch.

 All our Advocate and Welfare staff are predominately volunteers who have attended Department of Veterans’ Affairs sponsored training courses.

The service covers disability pensions, compensation payments, associated allowances, income support payments and medical treatment which may be available to entitled veterans, members and ex-members of the Defence Forces and their dependants.

The Centre can provide limited advice to Commonwealth and Allied veterans, those veterans will normally be referred to local branches of expatriate associations who would normally have more expertise in what benefits their home country provides for its veterans.

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

One of the Key Roles of our RSL includes Commemoration and Remembrance. This is done via important and significant Remembrance Days such as ANZAC Day & Remembrance Day, along with others.

Anzac day 2021

ANZAC Day marks the anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli in 1915 during World War I. However our ANZAC Day commemorative service goes beyond this. It is the day where we remember all Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. Currumbin RSL is the creator, funder and manager of one of Australia’s largest regional Dawn Services which attracts tens of thousands of people each year.
