RSA welcomes funding assistance

RSA National President, Don McIver, has welcomed the announcement by the Minister of Veterans Affairs, Hon Michael Woodhouse, of a grant of $150,000 to support veterans and their families.

“We have 250 support advisers and 500 hospital and home visitors, mostly volunteers, and these funds will be of great assistance in helping defray their costs. These veterans have given outstanding service to our nation and they, and their families deserve our care and support”, said Mr McIver.
