What We Do

NSW Police Legacy cares for the police family. 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. 


Financial & Welfare Assistance

We provide education and welfare grants, scholarship opportunities, and assistance to our police legacy families experiencing grief, loss, and those facing circumstances in which extra financial support is required.
