To support our community in preparing for end of life in a compassionate way, Council has received funding to develop a Compassionate Communities program.

Between August 2021 and April 2022 we will trial activities, information sessions and places where we will offer opportunities to have end of life conversations.

We hope it will help our community to have these conversations in a compassionate, resilient, mindful and prepared way.

Let’s start talking, so we can stop worrying and make the most of our lives.

Funding was provided by The Hospital and Research Foundation with support from Palliative Care SA.
