Organisation Name : NSW Police Legacy

NSW Police Legacy was originally established to care for the widows, widowers, partners and dependent children of deceased NSW police officers. Today, we care for many members of the wider police family, including our police legatees, the parents of deceased police officers through the parents' support network, special constables, serving and retired police and their families facing necessitous circumstances, and former police and their families as they transition from a career in policing to civilian life through the Backup for Life Program.

We take pride in developing long lasting relationships with our families to ensure their needs are being met, whether that be through covering the costs of their children's education, providing referrals to bereavement counselling and other social services, or introducing them to other police legacy families in their area through local social events and activities. 

Our Vision: The preeminent police charity protecting the police family.

Our Purpose: To build a strong, resilient and charitable police family.

Our Values - 

Respect: We honour the proud tradition of policing and the police family.

Compassion: We take pride in providing compassionate, continuous and long-term support to the people in our care.

Family: We embrace the camaraderie and unique bond shared across the police family.
