Legacy Week: 1 - 7 September 2013

Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. At Melbourne Legacy we currently care for more than 16,000 widows and 350 dependants of the 65,000 widow(er)s and 1,800 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.

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.

Legacy helps families, not just in the short term - Legacy is there for life.

Legacy Services

Legacy's assistance is aimed at helping families of deceased veterans to live rich and meaningful lives.

Legatee Members

Legacy services are provided by our volunteer members (called Legatees). If you share the ideals of Legacy and want to assist in our work, we would welcome a membership enquiry from you.

Legacy Support

To maintain Legacy's services we rely heavily on public support. Our principal fundraising activity is the Legacy Week Badge Appeal.

In 2013, the appeal will be held from 1 September to 7 September.
