Care of dependents of returned ex-servicemen.
Legacy is dedicated to caring for the families of deceased and incapacitated veterans. Today Legacy's caring and compassionate service assists over 90,000 widows and 1,900 children and dependants with a disability.
Legacy is a voluntary organisation supported by veterans, servicemen and women, and volunteers drawn from all walks of life. Our support and services now extend to include the dependants of members of today's Australian Defence Force who lose their lives or their health as a result of their military service.
Legacy is dedicated to enhancing the lives and opportunities of our families through innovative and practical programs aimed at:
the protection of individuals and families basic needs;
advocating for their entitlements, rights and benefits;
assisting families through bereavement; and
helping people thrive, despite their adversity and loss.
There are over 5,900 volunteers around Australia who act as mentors to the widows and their families and who ensure Legacy’s promise to care for the families of deceased veterans is kept.
