Update 10: RSL NSW has announced that the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) and the Minister have approved the Business Case submitted for the Nowra Veterans Wellbeing Centre (VWC). Read more here. DVA will now be making arrangements with RSL LifeCare for the transfer of the grant funds so the implementation of the Centre can commence. The Nowra RSL Sub-Branch was a significant contributor to the work conducted by the Nowra VWC Working Group and will continue to support the establishment and operations of the Centre, which will be utilising the consortium approach recommended in the Business Case. The Nowra VWC will significantly boost support services to local Veterans, integrating existing services currently provided by Government and local service providers.
