Bereavement services

In the event that a death occurs in your family, RSL DefenceCare can assist in a number of ways including:

  • Providing counselling and support;
  • Liaising with RSL NSW sub-Branches to arrange funeral tributes for ex-serving members*;
  • Organising RSL Star Ceremonies to commemorate a serviceman or woman's life and aid in the grieving process for the family; and
  • Assisting with claims with the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

RSL DefenceCare may be able to assist families in necessitous circumstances through this difficult and sensitive time by providing financial assistance. This program is part of RSL DefenceCare's welfare support.

*Funeral tributes are normally conducted by RSL NSW sub-Branch volunteers. Tributes are subject to availability of volunteers and may not be possible at short notice. We thank you for your understanding.
