Legacy Week: Supporting veterans and their families

August 24, 2016
Legacy Week - bears

In Australia, we’re rightfully proud of the contributions of our armed forces; in conflict, peace-keeping, or disaster relief. However those contributions have sometimes come at a terrible price. Legacy exists to honour this sacrifice, and provide support to those left behind.

Legacy is a unique organisation, providing vital support to the families of veterans. First established in 1923 by ex-servicemen, Legacy currently provides counselling, special housing, medical, advocacy and social support services to around 80,000 families. With local clubs around Australia, and a long and proud history of service, Legacy is an iconic Australian charity committed to:

• the protection of individuals and families basic needs
• advocating for their entitlements, rights and benefits
• assisting families through bereavement
• helping people thrive, despite their adversity and loss

Legacy Week is their annual national appeal and your chance to support Legacy directly. In 2016 Legacy Week will run from August 28th – September 3rd, and during the week volunteers will have a range of merchandise available for donors. All funds raised will go towards supporting Legacy’s essential services in the community.
