Our Community

Castle Hill RSL has an active role in the surrounding community, providing necessary sponsorship and club grants to over twenty sporting clubs and charitable organisations. In 2016/17 the Castle Hill RSL Group donated over 2 million dollars to the community.

We are also committed to the highest level in sustainability practices that underpin our ongoing strategic development and operations. A cogeneration system designed by Simons Green Energy has been installed to provide Castle Hill Fitness & Aquatic centre with enough power to cover base load electricity demands while utilising waste heat to provide hot water in the pools and domestic hot water storage tanks.

Also known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP), it is the simultaneous production of 2 forms of energy, electricity and heat, from a single fuel source at the point of usage. The cogeneration plant is made up of 142 kilowatt reciprocating gas engine, a series of heat exchangers and hot water storage tanks and satisfies 70% of the building’s electricity requirements, which is cheaper and cleaner than coal-fired grid supplied electricity.

The tri-generation system is Castle Hill RSL’s $1 million project – a joint commitment with the Federal Labor Government through the Community Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP). The system captures waste heat and turns it into heating, cooling and surplus electricity, saving on energy costs (approx. $200,000 per year) and cutting carbon pollution (the equivalent of taking 268 cars off the roads or planting 12,000 new trees). The financial savings through this program enable the club to invest even more in to the local community.

Club Grants

Community Groups in the Hills Shire have an opportunity to formally apply to registered clubs in their local area for funding for various community-related projects. The funding is made available from profits generated at these clubs from gaming. The ClubGRANTS Scheme (formerly the CDSE Scheme) was established to formalise this funding process.

The ClubGRANTS Scheme was designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to their local communities; and to ensure that the disadvantaged in the community are better positioned to benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs.

There are three categories of ClubGRANTS available:

Category 1 funding is specifically for local projects and/or services that contribute to the welfare and broader social fabric of the local community and are aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people. These projects encompass Community Welfare & Social Services, Community Development, Community Health Services and Employment Assistance Activities.

Category 1 Application Form

Category 2 funding is generally for projects not listed or eligible for Category 1 funding such as Sport and Recreational Clubs, Cultural Activities – Visual/Performing Arts, Charity Fundraising, Medical Research and in-kind services such as Complimentary Room Hire, Fundraising Products and Prizes and Training Facilities for Elite Athletes.

Download Category 2 Application Form

Category 3 funding is automatically paid by the club into the NSW Government’s ClubGRANTS Fund on a quarterly basis to support and develop large scale State-wide projects or services such as Sports Venues and Facilities, Hospitals and Community Health Services, Youth Facilities, Child Care Facilities, Aged Care Facilities, Educational Facilities, Emergency Services Facilities, Parks and Recreation, Community Housing and Community Transport.

Community groups are encouraged to apply for Category 1 or Category 2 funding by downloading and completing the relevant form and returning it to Castle Hill RSL, P.O. Box 25, Castle Hill, 1765 or emailing directly to bradenk@castlehillrsl.com.au along with all supporting documentation. All applications are reviewed by the Board of Directors on a monthly basis and are either approved or rejected depending on their merits and the amount of funding available at the time.

If you are unsure which category of funding your organisation may be eligible for, please contact the club and ask for advice from the ClubGRANTS co-ordinator.

Exact Security

During his time at Panthers, Steve van Zwieten, became a leader within an industry that was evolving from the era of the “bouncer” to one of the “security professional”. A positive move but, for Steve, the evolution was only partially complete.

The time was ripe to scale the next height. He conceived the idea of “customer-service oriented security services”, services that play a positive role in customer relations while simultaneously protecting people, buildings, and equipment.

Even attaining this, there are new heights to scale.

Steve’s goal was to enable security operatives to reach greater personal and professional achievements. He believes that quality mentoring and training can unlock greater potential for each individual, making stronger team members with better skills in both leadership and management.

The best personnel operate within systems and can be somewhat limited by those systems. The best security operative will always perform best but when complemented by quality electronic security systems, the result is an overall operation that can add to a businesses bottom line.

Essentially, Exact Security is the vehicle for Steve’s dream of the ultimate security system and therefore it offers the four pillars needed to deliver such a system:

Risk Analysis – the enterprise-wide risk assessment determines the extent of your need
Security Personnel – only the very best operatives can survive Exact’s selection processes.
Training – Exact places a high priority on training its personnel. Clients are invited to participate. Exact also offers specialized and specific training for venues.
Electronic Security – electronic systems tailored to your needs and integrated by experts using the best possible and most suitable components.
