I Care for Palliative Care: Campaign Resources

UPDATE: CAMPAIGN WIN!

On 12 June the NSW Government announced a $100 million funding boost over four years for palliative care services. This announcement is a really good step as substantial funding for palliative care in NSW is so desperately needed. We are pleased to see the Government taking action in this regard and congratulate them on their action and positive funding commitment.

This is a significant investment and an indication of the strength of the community campaign to ensure that those who need palliative care can get it – when and where they need it. Thank you to our CanAct Community for the role they have played in the I Care for Palliative Care campaign. Read more about the NSW Government announcement here.


To support CanAct Leaders to deliver the I Care for Palliative Care campaign across NSW, we've produced a number of resources, as below. Over the course of the campaign we'll upload additional items as developed. If there's a resource that you think would be valuable but isn't here, please email advocacy@nswcc.org.au to make a request.
