Member Advantage Program

 

The NSW SES Volunteers Association is a separate entity to the NSW State Emergency Service, and as such does not receive any government funding.

NSW SES Volunteers Association members, who are all volunteers, are not charged any membership fees. Our organistation undertakes fundraising in order to function and provide support to its members.

We are a Charitable Institution and currently raise funds via donations, public raffles and sponsorships.

Funds raised assist NSW SES VA in achieving its objectives:

  • Providing representation of the views and concerns of the volunteer members of the NSW SES
  • Providing tangible benefits to the volunteer members of the NSW SES
  • Providing public education

The NSW SES Volunteers Association's many functions ensure that all NSW SES Volunteers across NSW are represented not only by a competent and professional entity, but also one that is highly influential in ensuring the voices of volunteers are clearly heard by those in power. The funding also assists NSW SES Units in procuring worthwhile necessities for their area, ensuring that they can provide the maximum benefit to people within their community.

Funds generated directly benefit volunteers through a number of “giving” programs including Unit Grants and Scholarships for much needed operational equiment, amenities and welfare items.

The generous support of people across NSW who assist in the funding of the NSW SES Volunteers Association is very much appreciated.

Value of legal advice

When preparing a will, it is advisable to seek qualified legal advice to ensure you achieve all you wish for your family and others through your will. Your solicitor can advise you on tax matters such as trusts, guardians, asset valuation and power of attorney.

Family

It is important that you consider your own family first. Even if you plan to leave a large amount of your estate to the NSW SES Volunteers Association, it is important to include your family in your will. In this way, you can prevent later personal and legal struggles should anyone contest your Will.
