Kate Bowman, Manager, Volunteer Support Services Programme

Kate joined Palliative Care NSW first during her internship through Macquarie University as part of the requirements for a Bachelor of Social Science degree back in 2016.

Her first project involved talking with volunteer managers of community services about their volunteers who find themselves incidentally coming into contact with people at or near the end of life. Since then Kate has undertaken a variety of social research including looking into developments in aged care and palliative care, complementary therapies, and rural and regional volunteering.

Kate is a passionate supporter of volunteering having been both a volunteer and volunteer manager in a variety of capacities throughout her life. Now she feels privileged to help steer the Volunteer Support Services Program into the future. Email Kate.
