Caring for the families of those who served their country
|Melbourne Legacy is dedicated to caring for the families of Australian Defence Force veterans who have lost their life or health serving their country. At a time when all hope may seem lost, Legacy is there to help a family or individual through the tough times and restore their confidence in the future.|
Joshua, Holly and Olivia (pictured above) lost their Dad, who was in the Army, when he died during Operations in Afghanistan in 2011. Since then, Legacy has been there for them and their Mum, Jacky, to provide caring support. The family has their own Legatee who keeps in touch and organises access to all the services they need, and the children go on regular outings and holiday camps with other Legacy kids.
Legacy standbys Defence Force families to ensure a child gets an education and a fair go, a widow is not disadvantaged and alone, and a family is not torn apart by the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The difference our compassionate and vital assistance has made to so many lives is everlasting.
