London Legacy is a not for profit Charity orgainisation supporting widows of Australian and New Zealand servicemen in the United Kingdom. London Legacy is directly related to Legacy Australia.
Legacy is a uniquely Australian organisation, established in 1923 by ex-servicemen dedicated to the task of caring for the widows and dependants of their comrades.
The legacy of care embraces: both World Wars, conflicts in Korea, Malaya, Malaysia, South Vietnam, peacekeeping operations in East Timor, the war in Iraq and any death which is deemed service related.
Volunteer members were called Legatees because they accepted the legacy of care for their comrades' families; this title has continued to the present day. Some 5,600 Legatees assist more than 122,000 widows and 1,800 children and people with disabilities Australia-wide.
Legacy's assistance takes many forms, providing a level of support necessary for each individual situation. With the help of Legatees, who stay in touch with all families, Legacy ensures families receive their Legacy entitlements and access to government benefits.
