Get Involved - Sydney Legacy

Volunteer with Legacy to make a difference.

Legacy is a not for profit organisation which provides support services to the families of veterans who gave their lives or their health. Many of the people we support, particularly our older widows and widowers, become stressed by dealing with grief and loneliness.

This can lead to a lack of interaction with others and compounding feelings of hopelessness and despair. Widows and widowers who live alone at home may have restricted mobility are most likely to suffer from social isolation.


About the activity you will be supporting

We are seeking volunteer support to socialise with our much loved war widow beneficiaries at our new morning tea events taking place within aged care facilities and also within the comfort of their own homes. Depending on your availability we will need you roughly 1 – 3 times per month.

The following skills are highly desirable:

• Show empathy for the mature aged, disadvantaged and socially isolated clients
• At ease working independently or as part of a team
• Effective interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate with people from a variety of backgrounds
• A commitment to visit for a minimum of 6-12 months



Apply Now

If you would like to make a difference whilst potentially learning some new skills, then this could be the opportunity for you. Full training and ongoing support will be provided.

Volunteers will be required to undergo a Criminal History Check (which Legacy will pay for).

For a role description or further information please email volunteer@sydney-legacy.com.au or phone 02 9248 9074.
