Financial Assistance

How we can help

Eligible Veterans can access funding from Veteran Sport Australia to pay for equipment, fees or other things you may need to stay active and involved.

You can apply for VSA financial assistance by completing the below form and emailing it to support@veteransport.org.au.  For any questions or further enquiries you can email or call us on (02) 8088 0388. 

In addition, sport and wellbeing activities can be funded by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs through their Veteran and Community Grants.

These grants are only available to ex-service organisations, veterans' groups, community organisations and private companies, not individuals.


Veteran Sport Australia was established by RSL Welfare and Benevolent Institution (RSL WBI) in 2018. To ensure VSA can provide services to both current ADF members and ex-serving veterans and their families, RSL WBI engaged RSL NSW to deliver VSA on its behalf. The costs of services for ex-serving veterans and their families are met by RSL WBI, while RSL NSW funds services for current ADF members serving members and their families. This ensures both organisations are operating within their purpose and compliant.
