Care Provider

The Legacy Club of Adelaide Inc, established in 1928, was part of a national network of autonomous clubs that encouraged mutual self-help among ex-servicemen and provided care and support to the families of deceased ex-servicemen. Following the second World War, the Adelaide Legacy Club opened Wentworth House and Waverley House to provide accommodation for the children of deceased servicemen who were attending schools and undertaking apprenticeships in the city.
