We collaborate with like-minded stakeholders to achieve our collective mission. We are currently delivering a number of programs in partnership with La Trobe University as part of the CAPACITY-HELP Project 2021.

CAPACITY-HELP is based on a public health approach to end of life and palliative care. This requires a whole-of-system approach, acknowledging that everyone has a role to play in supporting communities around end of life. 


PHPC Ambassadors Network

The Ambassadors Network links formal and informal alliance networks for a more integrated approach to Public Health Palliative Care (PHPC). The program fosters leadership and relationships for cross-sector collaboration. Anyone in clinical and allied health, or who works or volunteers in the palliative care can become a PHPC Ambassador. Find out more

Community Conversations

Education sessions for members of the community who have a passion for supporting people at end of life.  Topics covered include; navigating end of life matters, dying as being a normal part of life and advance care planning.

We are seeking expressions of interest if you would like to host one in your place of work or community. Find out more

CAPACITY – HELP: Local Government 

There is an opportunity for selected councils, initially within the SE NSW region, to engage in a demonstration project to explore how end of life matters might be incorporated into local government policy, planning and practice.  For more information contact Linda Hansen, CEO Palliative Care NSW.  info@palliativecarensw.org.au

Find out how a local government project works with this partnership between La Trobe University and Municipal Association of Victoria.
