Legatee Community Program

NSW Police Legacy provides care and ongoing support to the families of police officers who have suffered a loss.

We understand the complex and difficult emotions that you are feeling after the death of your loved one. We are here to ensure no legatee coming into our care is left feeling isolated or alone. 

The Community Support team is a specialised team, and includes a Community Support Manager, Community Support Officer, and Community Support Youth Officer. We are here to provide a listening ear and nonjudgmental support to you, and we have the knowledge, experience, and training to offer a holistic, person-centred approach, ensuring you have the flexibility to access services in a manner that is best suited to your situation.

The support and needs of our legatee children and young adults are very different to those of our solo parents/legatees and senior legatees. To ensure that we provide targeted support to all our legatees we have three portfolios:

  • Children and Youth
  • Solo Parents/Legatees
  • Senior Legatees (65+)

Join the Legatee Community Program

The programs, services and support we offer are bespoke, and tailored to the individual needs of our legatees. We work in partnership with local support organisations to ensure holistic, person-centered support is offered to meet the needs of our individual legatees.
