Ballina RSL sub-Branch is a vibrant organisation, which has served Returned and Services League members and their families for more than 100 years.
To wear the RSL badge a member must have served in or in support of the Australian Defence Forces. It is unique, never owned and only made available to RSL members. We wear it with pride.
We honour members and eligible members, past and present for their service to our Nation, for the Australian way we so much enjoy.
We care for the present membership as well as their families, there are many tangible and intangible benefits for members, friendships, camaraderie and achievements made through volunteering to care and assist fellow members.
We are focusing on and planning the future RSL. Ever evolving generational changes are keeping the RSL as relevant today as it was a hundred years ago.
