Palliative Care Australia’s National Palliative Care Awards are aimed at recognising innovation, teamwork and emerging talent in the palliative care sector. The awards reward the efforts of those who support and care for people who are dying through public recognition of organisations and individuals who provide support and care to those people.

With a prize pool of $18,000 it’s a fantastic opportunity for you to get some professional development money!

Individuals can win $2000 to be spent on professional development plus free registration to the Oceanic Palliative Care Conference in 2021.

Award: Outstanding achievement by a volunteer

Volunteers mean the world to us. This award recognises the exceptional contribution of a volunteer in improving the experience of a patient/s with Palliative Care needs or their family. Palliative Care Australia is proud to recognise those who selflessly and generously volunteer their time and skills to look after others, without asking for recognition or expecting anything in return.

Nominations in this category are judged on the following:

  • Commitment: how this volunteer has demonstrated considerable commitment in terms of responsibility assumed and how his/her responsibilities have increased over time;
  • Impact: how this volunteer has made a notable impact while serving patients and families;
  • Personal Growth: How the nominee has grown personally through his/her volunteer work and how that has been demonstrated using specific examples.
  • Inspiration to others: How this nominee has served as an inspiration to fellow volunteers and the palliative care organisation


  • The nominee must have been a volunteer more than 24 months
