Legacy helps veterans' families

For over 100 years, we’ve been there with essential support and services to ensure no veteran’s family suffers financially or socially after the death or injury of their loved one.

With your help, families of servicemen and women can thrive

Thanks to the generous support of our wonderful fundraisers, we are proud to offer programs and services tailored to suit the unique needs of each family.

Young families and children

From the time of bereavement, Legacy will be on hand to provide practical and emotional support including financial relief and support to advocate for entitlements.

Ageing and vulnerable widows

We ensure widows are not disadvantaged by their partner’s service. We provide support including relief from financial hardship and care plans to combat social exclusion.

Dependants with disabilities

When a young child or adult with a disability is dependent on a veteran, Legacy will be there to assist them through their lives with enduring care including opportunities for social connection and trusted advice on medical and social issues.

100 years of service

Legacy was established in 1923, growing out of the ashes of World War One in which some 60,000 Australian service personnel were killed and more than 150,000 were wounded.

From the beginning, Legacy made a promise to help veterans’ families carry on with their lives after the loss or injury of their loved one.

It’s a simple promise that we keep: to look after the family.

That is a promise to provide the same stability, guidance and assistance that a partner would normally provide to his or her family.

With more than 100 years of compassionate service behind us, Legacy continues to honour this promise, and today supports 40,000 individuals and families across Australia.
