The RAR Association Victoria Branch’s purpose, as written in its Constitution and expanded in its By-Laws, is to provide co-ordination for the activities of its Members when such co-ordination is necessary.

This includes:

  • fostering and protecting the interests of its Members and their members and their families in any matter likely to be relevant to them during or after their service in the Royal Australian Regiment;
  • providing advice and guidance to the Members and their members;
  • perpetuating the close bonds of comradeship and esprit de corps created by  service in the Royal Australian Regiment;
  • preserving the memory of those members of the Regiment who have died on active and overseas service;
  • representing the interests of the serving and ex-serving members of the Regiment and their families at national level;
  • planning, organising and developing benefit services and conducting events related to the Members and the Regiment;
  • developing and representing, the Members view on matters of interest to appropriate parties on National Matters;
  • conducting  fund raising activities on National Matters; and
  • fostering, promoting and supporting the formation and growth of  Members without in any way impinging on the internal management of their organisation.

 To achieve its purpose the Corporation may enter into a relationship with any other organisation whose purpose/objects are compatible with ours..
