This grant is an initiative to support innovative, non-government organisations that can bring new ideas and perspectives to improve and diversify palliative care options throughout the state.
The State Government is investing $16 million more for palliative care services over four years to improve services and provide more options for South Australians to ensure exceptional end-of-life care options for those that need it most.
The grants aim to improve access to high quality end-of-life care for priority populations, including those with special needs as well as older Australians living in aged care facilities. These grants will improve palliative care in Residential Aged Care Facilities through strong partnerships between specialist palliative care services and other organisations, as well as increasing education, training, assistance and mentoring of the residential aged care.
A limited number of grants of up to $150,000 are available and organisations may apply for more than one grant for different projects.
