|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. At Coffs Coast Legacy we currently care for more than 560 widows and dependants of the 70,000 widows and 1,900 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.|
|Legacy is dedicated to enhancing the lives and opportunities of our families through innovative and practical programs aimed at:|
- the protection of individuals and families basic needs;
- advocating for their entitlements, rights and benefits;
- assisting families through bereavement; and
- helping people thrive, despite their adversity and loss.
|Legacy's assistance is aimed at helping families of deceased veterans to live rich and meaningful lives.|
|Legacy services are provided by our volunteer members (called Legatees). If you share the ideals of Legacy and want to assist in our work, we would welcome a membership enquiry from you.|
