Supportingour Locals

At the Laurieton United Services Club, community lies at the core of our mission. We strive to cultivate meaningful connections that embrace our entire community.

Proudly participating in the ClubGRANTS program, we extend both financial assistance and in-kind support to our local community. With a legacy spanning from 1955, LUSC holds a significant role within the communities we serve. We provide a welcoming space for our 9,000+ members to gather, dine, and engage in social activities, fostering friendships and camaraderie.

Additionally, we extend vital support and amenities to veterans and their families while also sponsoring numerous youth-focused initiatives spanning sports, recreation, arts, culture, and education.

Laurieton United Services Club has been a huge part of Slice of Haven from the onset. Hosted on the club’s doorstep and with Robert Dwyer, Secretary Manager, one of the event visionaries at the helm; Slice of Haven has become an important addition to the event calendar of the NSW Mid North Coast and an event we are excited and proud to be part of each year with over 70 stallholders and 16,500 people tasting their “slice” of Haven.

The Club extends aid through cash donations, community grants, and offers its venue for meetings to various local service organizations such as Rotary, Probus, as well as locally-based charitable entities like Riding for the Disabled, Meals on Wheels, and Torchbearers for Legacy. Additionally, the club backs 22 affiliated sub-clubs, spanning Lawn Bowls, Fishing Club, Travel Club, Bridge Club, Women’s, and Men’s Golf Clubs.

Since August 2016, the Club has been a proud supporter of Camden Haven Community @ 3. This initiative emerged from the pressing need to address homelessness and loneliness in the area. It provides an avenue for individuals to connect and reconnect with our community, fostering a sense of belonging and support.
