Support a fundraiser
RSL DefenceCare would not be able to help our veterans and their families without the support of the following people and organisations. On behalf of the veterans and families we help, thank you for your generosity.
Invisible Battles Appeal
It’s hard to see what our veterans go through when they return to civilian life. They battle invisible enemies such as post-traumatic stress, depression, and chronic pain – all which wage a silent war on them – and their families. Our veterans are in desperate need of crisis support. We need your help urgently. Donate generously here.
Award-winning director Jennifer Perrott who grew up in a Defence Force community has written a poignant and tender film about an Aussie soldier struggling to return to family life after war. Told through the eyes of his young daughter, this story looks at the challenges facing returning service personnel coping with trauma and the effects on their families. It has a hopeful and positive ending.
Once completed, THE RAVENS will travel the festival circuit and be used for many years in rehabilitation for soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, as a much-needed icebreaker to facilitate discussion. It will also be seen by our young defence population returning from deployment, and also their families. Any profits from the distribution of the film will go to the RSL DefenceCare.
