Legacy is one of Australia’s oldest and most trusted charities, which provides personalised support and services to the families of veterans of the Australian Defence Force, who have given their lives or health for their country.
It is not widely known, but Legacy also provides support for the families of veterans, even when an ex serving veteran passes, whilst retired from military service.
Legacy was born in the trenches of the Western Front during World War I, as a soldier said to his dying mate “look after the missus and kids”.
This became known as The Promise – and it is still kept today.
As we commemorate Legacy’s Centenary in 2023, CP attended The Legacy Centenary Torch Relay 2023 Launch presented by Defence Health, last week in Brisbane.
To keep the Legacy Promise alive, we ask you to consider joining on this journey towards Legacy’s Centenary as Legacy empowers our veterans’ families to live their best future.
