Palliative Care Victoria


Palliative Care Victoria is an incorporated charitable organisation established in 1981. As a peak body, we represent palliative care services and those with an interest in palliative care and we provide leadership that informs, supports and advocates for quality palliative care for all Victorians. Our vision is that all Victorians with a life limiting illness and their families are supported to live well, to die well and to grieve well.

Palliative Care Victoria is also the ‘go to’ organisation for patients and families seeking to find out more about palliative care and how to access palliative care services. We hear directly from families and patients who are dealing with life limiting illness and seeking support to receive the care and support they need. We also work with communities to raise awareness of palliative care and to build community capacity in relation to dying, death, grief and loss.
