Circular 27/24 Community of Practice for volunteer advocates and WSOs

ANZAC House will host a peer-led forum for RSL NSW volunteer advocates and Wellbeing Support Officers (WSOs) on 23 May 2024 from 2.45pm at the Nowra Veterans’ and Families’ Hub. There is limited capacity for in-person attendance, but the session will be available to join via Microsoft Teams online.

The purpose of the forum is to develop a Community of Practice and will include speakers from The Office for Veterans Affairs (OVA). Attendees will be invited to participate in Q&As on legislative reform and homelessness pathways, as well as open discussion with fellow advocates and WSOs.

If your sub-Branch has a volunteer advocate or WSO who would like to attend the forum in person or virtually, please encourage them to contact the Member Support Team via support@rslnsw.org.au or 1300 679 775 to register for the Teams webinar.

WSO training sessions are currently being held across the state. Any members who are interested in becoming a WSO and supporting veterans in their community can get more information by contacting support@rslnsw.org.au.
