Legacy Members (Legatees)

Legacy relies heavily on our Legatees who are members of Legacy and tirelessly volunteer their time to support Legacy’s vision and mission.

Legacy services and support is primarily delivered throughout South Australia and Broken Hill by Legatees, who through personal effort, ensure that, the Legacy Vision, no dependant of a veteran suffers financial or social disadvantage as a result of their loved ones’ death or injury from service is upheld.

In the past, Legatees were ex-servicemen, however today men and women of demonstrated high personal standards who share the ideals and obligations of Legacy, may be invited to become a Legatee. Legatees are formed within suburban Sections and in the country regions there are Legacy Groups. The Sections and Groups operate virtually autonomously, supported by a centralised headquarters at Legacy House in Franklin Street, Adelaide.

Legacy’s structure recognises that while Legacy support is coordinated centrally, it is best delivered locally by local Legatees, that is why it is critical that Legacy maintains a Legatee force of sufficient numbers so that it can effectively meet its vision to provide personal, local support to its widows and families. Legatees are backed up by professional and qualified Community Service team located in the Adelaide headquarters.

Interested in becoming a Legatee, please call 8231 9812 or email [email protected] to further discuss.
