RSL Victoria to establish Veterans’ and Families’ Hub in the Surf Coast and Geelong

Department of Defence

Services and supports for veterans and their families in the Surf Coast and Geelong region will soon be enhanced, with the Albanese Labor Government today awarding RSL Victoria a $5.445 million grant to establish a new Veterans’ and Families’ Hub with satellite services across the region.

This is great news for more than 6,600 veterans in the region, who will now be able to access the support they need and deserve, closer to home.

The Hub will be centrally located in Geelong and will have major satellite sites at the Torquay and Queenscliff RSLs, servicing both the Bellarine and the Surf Coast. Surf Coast Shire facilities will also play an important role in hosting social and recreational programs for local veterans.

These facilities will be easily accessible to veterans and will offer much-needed outreach services.

The expansion of the Veterans’ and Families’ Hubs network in the Surf Coast, Bellarine and Geelong region is part of the Government’s $46.7 million commitment to deliver ten Veterans’ and Families’ Hubs across the country.
