|The Legacy family comprises: Legatees, Volunteers; Staff; and Widows.|
Members of Legacy are known as ‘Legatees’. These are those dedicated men and women who provide care and assistance to those for whom Legacy accepts responsibility. Historically, Legatees were returned servicemen although today Legacy welcomes membership enquiries from any person who shares the ideals of Legacy. There are currently over 6100 Legatees throughout Australia, some having served Legacy for more than 50 years.
Legacy is also assisted by a wonderful group of volunteers who, while not wanting to commit to the role of a Legatee, are nevertheless happy to provide their time and expertise to more routine activities such as assisting with mail outs or selling badges during Legacy Week.
|In addition to our volunteers (both Legatees and others), Legacy has a small but professional staff who embrace the ethos of the Legacy organisation. These staffs, totalling almost 200 throughout Australia, support Legacy with a wide range of corporate and executives services.|
Our Legatees, volunteers and staff all work at supporting the dependants of those who served in war and other operational areas (including peacekeeping) and who died on service or subsequently. Legacy also supports the dependants of today's Australian Defence Force who lose their lives as a result of their service.
