The SASR Auxiliary was formed in 1965 by partners of soldiers serving in the Regiment to give support and promote friendship among SASR families. This volunteer, not-for-profit organisation, has become a vital component of the Regiment’s informal family support system.
The SASR Auxiliary offers regular opportunities for partners and families to meet through weekly playgroups, social and informative events such as education sessions, theme nights and parenting seminars. Babysitting is usually offered for all Auxiliary events. The Auxiliary provides workshops and personal development courses for health and wellbeing for its members and surrounding communities. It also assists charitable and other philanthropic causes. Members receive regular newsletters, which serve as an information source on support staff and broader Defence support activities and services.
