About Us

For every serving Australian, there’s more than one life at stake.

Melbourne Legacy has been delivering on our promise to help the families of those who served to build a sustainable future for more than 95 years.

To achieve this, we invest heavily in training and participate in research to ensure we have the knowledge and expertise to deliver life-changing outcomes.

Our evidence-based case management plans are built collaboratively ensuring they address the unique circumstances of each of our families.

Melbourne Legacy currently supports more than 4,700 people, all of whom are part of a family that has been touched by a loved one’s service to our country. Our dedicated volunteers are committed to helping families through difficult times. These amazing individuals provide the tools and support needed to build a brighter future.

Our services include relief from financial hardship, advice and referrals to support services such as counselling, assistance with children’s education and development, encouraging like-minded friendships, and advocating for entitlements and services.

You can assist Melbourne Legacy to continue to provide these essential services by:

  • Fundraising

  • Donating

  • Leaving a Bequest

  • Volunteering

If you have any ideas about how you could assist us in continuing to deliver our valuable service, please reach-out. There is always something YOU can do.

Thank you, Melbourne Legacy!

“My husband is a young veteran suffering 9 prolapsed discs and mental health conditions. Life is hard at the best of times… I am challenged daily to be a Mum, a wife, a carer, an employee plus all the other hats I wear. Financially, we live day to day, week to week, and when all your daughters’ friends are doing extra-curricular activities and they ask ‘Why can’t I’… your heart plummets and you feel like you are failing the most important job… being a mother. This is where Melbourne Legacy supported our family, paying for my two beautiful girls to learn the disciplines of Taekwondo! It is now the highlight of their week… all thanks to the amazing work you do for young veterans and their families. I can’t begin to thank you enough!” – Cherie

This is why we do what we do. If you think we can be of assistance to your family, please get in touch.
