RSL Australia would like to hear from the community regarding what you think is the most important issue to focus on in 2023 and beyond. We want to better understand the current needs and priorities of veterans (both members and non-members).

The research will be conducted independently and a report of the results will be available in 2023. The insights will be used to shape the RSL Australia strategic plan.

To begin with, we have launched a short survey to gather responses to the question:

“If you were in charge of RSL Australia, what’s the one priority you would focus on to improve the lives of veterans and their families – and why?”

We look forward to everyone’s feedback – all are welcome to participate – whether you’ve served or never served in the ADF. Answers will be 100% confidential and anonymous, and four winners will receive $100 shopping voucher valid at most major retailers.


After we collect this feedback, qualitative data will be collected through interviews with veterans and members of the veteran community across Australia to understand a range of key issues and perceptions.

The insights gained in these interviews will shape the main national survey which will be launched in February 2023.

    I live in Southport on the Gold Coast Qld

    Recently our RSL has been taken over by
    a private organisation and is now called
    the SO PO Club.

    I decided to go to the Surfers Paradise
    RSL but that is owned it would appear
    by the same group that has the SOPO

    Although Surfers has a better name,
    The Diggers Club. It seems to me that
    RSL Clubs are now a thing of the past.

    Is this true. ??

    Clubs are just that…they’re clubs. Just independent commercial entities that must abide by liquor and gaming laws. Not owned by the RSL. They just trade under its name. The RSL Sub Branch is where you go to support veterans.
