For every serving Australian, there’s more than one life at stake.
Legacy WA has been delivering on our promise to help the families of those who served to build a sustainable future for almost 100 years.
To achieve this, we invest heavily in training and participate in research to ensure we have the knowledge and expertise to deliver life-changing outcomes.
Our evidence-based case management plans are built collaboratively ensuring they address the unique circumstances of each of our families.
Legacy WA currently supports more than 3,700 people, all of whom are part of a family that has been touched by a loved one’s service to our country. Our dedicated volunteers are committed to helping families through difficult times. These amazing individuals provide the tools and support needed to build a brighter future.
Our services include relief from financial hardship, advice and referrals to support services such as counselling, assistance with children’s education and development, encouraging like-minded friendships, and advocating for entitlements and services.
Holidays and camps
Legacy holds annual recreational camps and holidays as a fundamental way of creating friendships and bonds.
From monthly morning teas to group social outings and annual celebrations, Legacy provides a regular means of social inclusion for those we support.
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.
Legacy understands families and individuals can have difficulty covering bills and expenses following the death of a family member and Legacy may be able to offer financial assistance where needed.
Assistance with claims

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.
