Programs and Services
We are there for the long term, providing for the educational and development goals of families. We help those we serve to grow and thrive despite adversity.
Relieving financial hardship
Legacy advocates to ensure beneficiaries receive government benefits or pensions they are entitled to. If needed, Legacy will provide a one off payment to assist during an emergency.
For beneficiaries on low incomes, regular payments may be made to top up pensions ensuring financial needs are met. Special payments may be made for transport to and from medical appointments or so they can attend Legacy functions.
Legacy ensures they can access health and medical support. For those living alone, an emergency response unit may be provided to help them live confidently in their own home.
These programs can also provide parents with respite and introduce children and families to others with shared experiences – providing support, community and opportunities for friendship.
