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.
