  • Promote knowledge and implementation of Advanced Care Planning.
  • Provide increased support for bereavement, grief and loss for families and carers.

A total of up to $4 million in funding is available over four years (FY 2023/2024 – 2026/27) under the World Class End of Life Care commitment, with multiple grants of between $320,000 up to $800,000 available ($80,000 – $200,000 per year).

A minimum amount of $800,000 ($200,000 per year) will go towards proposals from Aboriginal community-controlled organisations (ACCHOs or ACCOs).
