London Legacy

London Legacy is a charity providing services to families who reside in Europe and the United Kingdom and are suffering after the injury or death of a spouse or parent during or after their Australian defence force service.

London Legacy is the 48th club of Legacy Australia supporting families throughout the UK, Ireland, France and Belgium and is based at the Australian Trade Centre at Australia House in London.

This support comes in many forms, including practical assistance in such matters as accommodation, medical and overall general welfare.

Our people are all volunteers and in some cases have received support from Legacy in the past themselves. We appoint Legatees to oversee the well being of our widows and families. Historically Legatees were returned servicemen although today Legacy welcomes membership and participation from any person who shares the ideals of Legacy.

From monthly morning teas to group social outings and annual celebrations, Legacy provides a regular means of social inclusion for those we support.

Our impact

London Legacy represents the interests of the families we care for. This support has been provided in Europe since the end of the Second World War and London Legacy continues to carry on its mission through volunteerism and the commitments of our people.

And this commitment has seen London Legacy help many families in need, but has also helped to forge a link with the Australian Government and its defence force both in the United Kingdom and home in Australia to ensure the well being and support for families wherever they reside are catered for.
