Legacy Brisbane cares for the families of those who have served our country, including those dependants who are living with a disability. Legacy provides social and financial support to help them thrive despite having lost a parent. One such person is Kathy, whose father served in the Middle East and New Guinea during WW2. Legacy cares for Kathy and her mum, with Kathy being an active participant in the social outings provided by Legacy.
Imagine losing your father at just four years old. This was the reality of William, whose father passed away from a service related illness. William been supported by Legacy, through our Youth services “I get to go on Legacy Youth Camps with other kids just like me, and I know that we will be mates for life. Part of what makes those camps so special is that I feel like I can be myself, and not the boy who lost his Dad.”
Elizabeth is truly a strong inspiration, having lost both her Dad and her partner to military service, and she has been a part of Legacy for over 40 years. “I lost both my father and my husband to military service, and Legacy was there for both my mother and my family. I can’t thank Legacy enough for their caring support to me and my family for over the past 40 years.”
