Queanbeyan Eden Monaro Legacy

Queanbeyan Eden Monaro Legacy - Legacy

 
Legacy is dedicated to caring for the families of deceased and incapacitated veterans. Today Legacy's caring and compassionate service assists around 90,000 widows and 1900 children and dependants with a disability. Legacy is a voluntary organisation supported by veterans, servicemen and women, and volunteers drawn from all walks of life. Our support and services now extend to include the dependants of members of today's Australian Defence Force who lose their lives as a result of their military service.

Legacy is dedicated to enhancing the lives and opportunities of our families through innovative and practical programs aimed at:

  • the protection of individuals and families basic needs;
  • advocating for their entitlements, rights and benefits;
  • assisting families through bereavement; and
  • helping people thrive, despite their adversity and loss.

Queanbeyan Eden Monaro Legacy


The Legacy Club of Queanbeyan-Eden-Monaro began as Queanbeyan Legacy in 1933. The Club’s early activities were focused mainly in the Queanbeyan region, but in 1948 were increased to cover all of Monaro electorate. Contacts were established at Cooma and Bombala in 1953, providing the basis for Cooma-Bombala Legacy and in 1972 the name of the Club was changed to Queanbeyan-Monaro Legacy. In 1996 the Far South Coast (FSC) Group joined the Club, and in 1997 the Club title was changed to its present form.

The club now comprises three administratively and financially autonomous Groups, each with its own area of operations and operating under the overall control of the QEM Board of Management.

Legacy Week Badge Appeal


To maintain Legacy's services we rely heavily on public support. Our principal fundraising activity is the yearly Legacy Week Badge Appeal.

This year, Legacy Week was from 1 - 7 September 2013. Badge Day was Friday 6 September 2013 and we really appreciated all of your support.
