Schools - Melbourne Legacy

Legacy is an Australian charity that cares for the families of Defence Force veterans who have lost their life or health serving their country in the Army, Navy or Air Force.

Legacy’s work with Defence Force 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.

Legacy's school activities will enhance and enrich class room learning for your students and bring to life the efforts and sacrifices of our brave men and women.
