About Us

About Us - Melbourne 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 Disorder or other physiological injuries.

Volunteering at Legacy


Members of Legacy are known as Legatees - these are our dedicated men and women who provide care and assistance to Legacy families.

Legatees give their time, energy, talent and experience voluntarily to respond to the needs of veterans' families. They may also serve on one or more specialist and policy-development committees and assist with fundraising during Legacy's annual Badge appeal.

If you share Legacy's values of caring, empathy, respect and commitment and are interested in becoming a Legateem we welcome your enquiry.

For information please contact us on (03) 8626 0500 or
