What is RSL Life Care? Find out

Partner of a veteran

RSL DefenceCare provides services to veterans and their families. This includes partners and spouses.

For partners of veterans, both current and former serving, we know you often need to relocate for a job posting, or during transition out of service. Our employment program can help you to find a fulfilling career wherever your partners service takes you.

We can also help partners of current serving, transitioning or ex-serving Defence personnel with things like financial assistance and housing assistance, as well as referrals to other support services.

If you’re looking to get help for your partner, we can also talk with you about the next steps.
