Northern Queensland Legacy cares for approximately 650 beneficiaries in the region.
Our programs are focused on reducing social isolation and financial disadvantage and building a strong supportive Legacy community.
With an office in Townsville, Northern Queensland Legacy has strong links in the community, particularly with ex-service organisations which support local veterans.
From monthly morning teas to group social outings and annual celebrations, Legacy provides a regular means of social inclusion for those we support.

Become part of a proud tradition
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.
