Legacy programs are directed at the:

Families of veterans who have sacrificed their health

The Family Assist Program provides support to the partners, children and families of veterans who have sustained a serious service related illness or injury which impacts on their ability to support the family. The program is intended to provide a transitional and short-term period of support to assist the family towards a sustainable level of functionality. The program works collaboratively with other agencies and services to obtain the best possible outcomes for the family in need. Although services are usually short-term in nature, families are welcome to re-engage with Legacy at any time. Service delivery in this program is in the broader context of the family, with a particular focus on support to partners (who are usually, but not exclusively women) and children who are impacted by the members’ incapacity.
Legacy provides comfort and security to those who find themselves alone and vulnerable. While some widows require little more than advice, others require more extensive assistance including relief from financial hardship, help in combating social isolation and support with medical and respite care. Regardless of the level of care required, Legacy will do whatever it takes to ensure no widow of a deceased veteran will ever face life’s challenges alone.



Families of veterans who have sacrificed their health

young families and children

Young families are particularly deserving. While Legacy can never replace a spouse or parent, it will strive to create an environment where the family can thrive despite their loss. Marshalling all of its resources, Legacy will provide the advocacy, counseling and family support necessary for each family member to fulfill their dreams and live rewarding lives. Particular attention is given to the educational and developmental needs of children.


and dependants with disabilities

Legacy believes that people with disabilities have an inherent right to life on an equal basis with others and is proud of its commitment to those dependants with disabilities. While most primary care is delivered by specialist service providers, Legacy takes a personal and long-term interest in the welfare of dependants and their families, acting as an honest and reliable friend and advocate. Legacy also assists with opportunities to promote a healthy lifestyle, reduce social isolation, and provides respite for parents and carers.
