Legacy is dedicated to caring for the families of veterans who have died or become incapacitated, either on service or subsequently. This extends to veterans who have served in war, on peacekeeping and humanitarian missions. Today, Legacy's compassionate service assists over 60,000 beneficiaries, with 96% of them being elderly Widows, and dependants with a disability, through innovative and practical programs aimed at:
* Protecting the basic needs of individuals and families.
* Advocating for the entitlements, rights and benefits of individuals and families.
* Assisting families to cope with bereavement.
* Helping people thrive, despite their adversity and loss.
Legacy is a charity supported by men and women of all ages, from all walks of life and includes veterans and current ADF personnel. Our support services now extend to include the beneficiaries of members of today's ADF, who have lost their lives or become incapacitated as a result of their military service.
Legacy Club Services (LCS) is a service provider for participating Legacy Clubs that care for the families of veterans who gave their lives or health for the country. LCS enables participating Legacy Clubs to continue to provide a quality level of service to their beneficiaries by ‘freeing up’ the time of Legatees to fulfil their obligations under their charter.
This objective is achieved by centralising governance and compliance obligations, management of financial resources and accounts, reducing overheads and duplication of processes, combining efforts to advocate on behalf of beneficiaries and compete more effectively for funding from the public. LCS’s value proposition is that as a service provider it allows participating Legacy Clubs to have a significant combined social impact on Legacy beneficiaries (and the local community); provides the necessary support and resources to empower Legatees; maintains the autonomy and identity of local Legacy Clubs within their communities; and demonstrates its appeal to other Legacy organisations in Australia.
Participating Club have wound up their respective legal entities and transferred their assets and liabilities to LCS. The Legatees of those Clubs are members and shareholders of LCS.
