Legacy is dedicated to caring for the families of veterans who have died or become incapacitated either on service or subsequently. This extends to veterans who have served in war and on peacekeeping and humanitarian missions.
Today, Legacy's compassionate service assists over 90,000 widows and 1,900 children and dependants with a disability through innovative and practical programs aimed at:
• Protecting the basic needs of individuals and families.
• Advocating for the entitlements, rights and benefits of individuals and families.
• Assisting families to cope with bereavement.
• Helping people thrive, despite their adversity and loss.
Legacy is a charity supported by men and women of all ages, from all walks of life and including veterans and current Australian Defence Force personnel. Our support and services now extend to include the dependants of members of today's Australian Defence Force who have lost their lives or have become incapacitated as a result of their military service.
