Palliative Care NSW Volunteer Support Services Programme

The Volunteer Support Services Programme

In 2014 Palliative Care NSW received funding from the NSW Government (NSW Health) under the NSW Government plan to increase access to palliative care 2012-2016 of $1M over 3 years to host the Volunteer Support Services Programme.

The program aims to increase the capacity of palliative care volunteer services, and to raise public awareness about their work. Ultimately the Volunteer Support Services Program will develop a State-wide Framework for Palliative Care Volunteer Services to be finalised in 2017.
