Community Visitors and Legatees
Legacy is a voluntary organisation founded on personal service. Throughout Australia, thousands of dedicated volunteers and members regularly visit or call those we support, ensuring they always have someone to lean on.
In times of hardship, grief and loss, Legacy may step in to help families get back on their feet by assisting with emergency funds.
Legacy can assist families with filling out paperwork and making claims through Department of Veterans’ Affairs; as well as advocate to government on their behalf.
From monthly morning teas to group social outings and annual celebrations, Legacy provides a regular means of social inclusion for those we support.
