The NWOA is not a welfare organisation but is deeply concerned for the welfare of its members. Support is always available for members and their families provided the Committee is aware of the need for such support. Friends and family of members who need a helping hand are requested to contact a member of the committee.
Advice on claims with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs can be obtained from any State Branch of the Returned & Services League of Australia in your Capital City. Many RSL sub-branches can also assist. Advice may also be available from your closest sub-branch of the Naval Association of Australia.
Although no longer a practicing Advocate, Committee Member John Hodges, is available for advice of a general nature.
