Volunteering with the RSL will;
• Offer you meaningful opportunities for service utilising your skills & experience.
• Provide “on the job” experience for those studying.
• Allow you to meet new people and build relationships.

Volunteers work throughout the RSL in many and varying capacities that all in their own way make a valuable contribution to our ongoing mission.
Our aim is to find a volunteer role that best matches your skills and experience ensuring the contribution you make is meaningful to both you and the RSL.
