RSL Legal Aid

RSL Legal Aid is a joint initiative of the League and the legal profession throughout Australia. It recognises the special needs of those who have served or are currently serving in Australia’s armed forces, especially those on operational service, who may find themselves in urgent need of legal advice or guidance.

RSL Legal Aid is a referral Scheme by which all current members of the Armed Forces or the RSL may obtain “first aid” legal advice pro bono by telephone from anywhere in Australia.

In New South Wales the Legal Aid Providers are:

Law Access
(for legal advice)
1-300-888-529

Law Society’s Solicitor Referral Service
(for referral to a solicitor or to request pro bono assistance)
(02) 9926-0300 or 1800-357-300

Operation Care

The Returned & Services League of Australia, the RSL & Services Clubs Association and the Department of Defence have joined to establish Operation CARE.

The scheme provides up to one week’s ‘Rest and Recuperation’ at sites throughout the country for selected Defence personnel and their immediate family, where the Defence member has been repatriated to Australia as a consequence of wounds received in combat operations. This now includes widows of personnel killed in action.
