Melbourne Legacy

Melbourne Legacy - Legacy



Melbourne Legacy is dedicated to caring for families of Australian Defence Force veterans who have lost their lives or health serving their country. At a time when all may seem lost, Legacy is there to help a family or individual through the tough times and restore their confidence in the future.

Legacy's work with veterans' families can mean 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 or other physiological injuries. Support services may include:

  • Help to advocate for entitlements and services,
  • Advice and referrals to support services such as counselling,
  • Assistance with youth education and development,
  • Relief from financial hardship,
  • Activities to promote supportive friendships.




Caring for the families of those who served their country

Legacy has been protecting the wellbeing of veterans' families since 1923. Our compassionate and vital assistance changes lives, with care, friendship and support and we are honoured to serve our families.

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.

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.

The difference our compassionate and vital assistance has made to so many lives is everlasting.

Legacy is the only organisation of its type in the world and relies on its volunteers and donations to carry out its work. We appreciate and value your support throughout the year, but especially during Legacy Week in late August.
