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. This funding has been renewed for another 12 months.
The program aims to increase the capacity of palliative care volunteer services and to raise public awareness about their work. The Volunteer Support Services Program has developed a State-wide Framework for Palliative Care Volunteer Services, which was finalised in 2017.
