Ipswich Legacy

Ipswich Legacy has been keeping the promise since 1929.

Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service.

Ipswich Legacy encompasses the area from the bottom of the Toowoomba range to Boonah, Springfield, Ipswich, Fernvale to Yarraman.

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.

Brian

Being a Legatee is the most rewarding endeavour of my life. It makes me proud of my country when I see the enthusiasm and compassion volunteers bring to their roles as Legatees. I also see just how much enjoyment and fulfilment they get out of it.
