RSA Service & Member Welfare 

Our Mission is to support veterans and their families.

The RSA was formed in New Zealand in 1916 by returning ANZACs during World War One to provide support and comfort for service men and women and their families.

The Royal New Zealand Returned and Services Association is made up of 182 local RSAs around the country, each an entity in their own right, with over 102,000 members. Local RSAs are managed by their own executive committee while being united with the RNZRSA in our strategic pillars, vision, and values.

We believe in a nation joined by a heartfelt connection to the ANZAC spirit of courage, commitment, comradeship, and compassion.
