What We Do

Every year more members of the police family sadly become part of our Police Legacy family. Services and programs are designed, implemented, and evaluated to meet the holistic needs of those we support and to provide enrichment throughout all stages of their lives.
Our Community Support Team develop and nurture long-lasting relationships with our Legatee families. The team offer specialised care and support and ensure that Legatees do not face grief, bereavement, and life challenges alone.

Meaningful support services, programs, benefits and advocacy are provided through a framework of continuous improvement to demonstrate our social impact and to respond to the developing needs of our Legatees of all ages.
