About Sydney Legacy

Location:

Level one 47 York St, SYDNEY, NSW 2000, AU

Mission Statement

Legacy supports the partners and children of veterans. Legacy supports the partners and children of veterans who have seen their loved ones leave our shores to serve in wars from World War 1 and World War 2, to Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. Many never made the journey home and others returned bearing the physical and mental scars of war.

Description

Legacy offers programs and services aimed at providing social, financial and developmental support. Some of these services look different depending on the individual and their circumstances. Our work focuses on ensuring all needs are met as best as possible, providing for young families and children, ageing and vulnerable widows as well as dependants with a disability.
