Project Details

The State Government has made a commitment to improve and diversify quality palliative care options in South Australia.

The Palliative Care 2020 Grants Program is an initiative of the State Government to work with and support innovative non-government organisations who can bring new ideas to improve and diversify palliative care. This will increase access to services across South Australia for those who need it most including:

1. Improving Palliative Care in Residential Aged Care Facilities, with a focus on:

  • improving access to and the quality of palliative care in residential aged care facilities
  • building stronger partnerships between specialist palliative care services, the primary care sector, non-government organisations and residential aged care facilities
  • increasing the education, training, assistance and mentoring of the residential aged care workforce

2. Improving Palliative Care for Priority Populations, with a focus on:

  • rural and remote communities
  • people who experience complex needs (e.g. under 65 years with high level needs that cannot be met in standard residential care facilities)
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their families
  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities
  • people who experience disabilities
  • children

The Palliative Care Needs in South Australia 2019 Report highlights areas that require further improvement, to meet the needs of all people in the community, who require palliative and end-of-life care.  

Opening Date: 10th February 2020
