Sydney Legacy

Sydney Legacy - Legacy

Legacy is a charity providing services to dependants of veterans who gave their lives or health. At Sydney Legacy we currently care for around 13,000 widows and 600 dependants of the 65,000 widow(er)s and 1,800 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.

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.

Legacy helps families, not just in the short term - Legacy is there for life.

Operation Legacy Australia Kokoda Challenge 2017.

24 Legacy youth, accompanied by members of the ADF, completed the arduous Kokoda Trek to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Kokoda Campaign.
The ADF mentors supported the Junior Legatees physically and emotionally.
We are incredibly proud of their achievement and thank our generous corporate supporters - Thales, Qinetiq, Peet, AFA Foundation, Westpac and Defence Health.
