VOLUNTEERING AT LONGBEACH RSL
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Longbeach RSL.
We welcome new people to join our dedicated volunteer team at Longbeach.
Fundraising and Appeals
Volunteer roles at Longbeach RSL mainly centre on fundraising through selling badges just before ANZAC DAY and selling poppies prior to REMEMBRANCE DAY.
Sellers generally follow a roster and “set up shop” at larger shopping centres, hardware stores etc. Our Appeals Officer may also require assistance to assemble, pack and deliver merchandise trays to local schools and businesses before, and then collect the proceeds and stock balances directly after our Appeals. We also need assistance to sell raffle tickets at the Club on Thursday and Friday Nights.
Veteran Support volunteers provide well-being support to veterans and their families and may undertake a number of roles including:-
- Hospital & Home Visitation
- Veteran Transport
- Welfare Officers
- Other Veterans Support Activities
Most veteran support roles require volunteers to undergo a National Police Check for Aged Care. Some Veterans Support roles such as Pensions Officers and Welfare Officers also require volunteers to undergo specialized accredited training to enable them to undertake their duties. At Longbeach RSL, we fully support interested volunteers to become accredited.
Commemoration and Memorabilia
For ANZAC DAY and REMEMBRANCE DAY our Volunteers may be called on to assist at our Annual Commemoration Services.
Administrative Support roles may include assisting in the day to day running of our club and we always seek people who can freely offer their time, trade or professional qualifications to assist us to make Longbeach RSL a better Veterans Support and Community place to enjoy.
