Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. We currently care for around 90,000 widows and 1,900 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.


Legacy Week 2015
For each serving Australian who risks everything - a family does the same. Australians will have the chance to show their support for these very special families by buying a badge during Legacy Week, August 30 to September 5, 2015.

As one of Australia’s most iconic charities, Legacy grew out of the ashes of the Great War and still supports around 90,000 families of Defence personnel who have given their lives or their health for their country.

Australia has lost just over 100,000 service men and women in all conflicts with many, many more badly injured, both mentally and physically. In WWI alone around 60,000 service men and women were killed with another 60,000 losing their lives in the following 10 years as a result of their service.

Inquiry into the Mental Health of Australian Defence Force
Since its inception in 1923, Legacy has been caring for the families of veterans who gave their lives in service of the nation. Recently, Legacy has broadened its charter to include providing services to the families of those who not only gave their lives but those who gave their health while serving in the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

This change recognises that many members of the ADF suffer from long term debilitating health issues long after their ADF service ends. From Legacy’s perspective, this is likely to impact on families and it is the families which are central to Legacy’s charter.

Paint for a Mate Project has hit Bega
Berger is applying fresh coats of colour to 40 homes around Australia as part of the company’s support of Legacy and war widow Mavis Wheeler is the latest to have her home upgraded. Mrs Wheeler lost her husband Leslie as a result of his army service and since moving to Bega from Queensland has had regular visits from Legacy’s Peter Florance. She said Legacy’s support and advice was a real comfort – but there was one phone call that would prove more surprising than most.
