Organisation Name : Melbourne Legacy
Melbourne Legacy is a not-for-profit organisation that provides support to the families of Australian Defence Force personnel who have given their lives or health in service to our country.

We provide support to more than 5,500 veteran families, including widows, children, adults with a disability, and a growing number of families of veterans from more recent conflicts who are dealing with psychological and physical injuries.
