RSL Australia submission to Consultation on Terms of Reference for the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide
I am pleased to advise that following the request for feedback from sub-Branches through District Councils, RSL NSW has contributed to the RSL Australia submission on the Themes for Consultation to inform the Terms of Reference for the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide which was lodged on 21 May. You can read the submission here.
RSL State Branches across the country (except Queensland) provided member feedback which contributed to the RSL Australia submission.
The feedback received was consistent across the Branches, and predominantly in these areas:
The submission also communicated RSL members’ views on the scope of the Royal Commission, the need for clarity between the function of the Royal Commissioner/s and the role of the National Commissioner for Defence and Veteran Suicide Prevention and the importance of reviewing the previous work in this area.
We will continue to listen to and advocate for all veterans throughout the Royal Commission. The RSL NSW Strategic Plan, which was formulated following consultation with members, has set us up well to be the leading agents of change to improve the lives of veterans.

Cessnock RSL Sub-Branch was first Chartered on the 8th August 1928. At that time its membership consisted of veterans returning from active service in the Boer and First World Wars. The Club received an updated charter on the 30th June 1987 by which time its membership had been expanded to include all those men and women who had served in the Defence Forces of Australia and her Allies.
LEST WE FORGET
Respecting supporting and remembering our veterans and their families
