This new small grants program aims to strengthen the Tasmanian community’s capacity to discuss, facilitate and provide palliative care.

A collaboration between Primary Health Tasmania and the Department of Health, Tasmania, the health and wellbeing grants are funded by the Australian and Tasmanian governments.

Not-for-profit community organisations can apply for a grant of up to $20,000 to promote resilience and resourcefulness, build social connections, and facilitate opportunities for physical, mental and psychosocial wellbeing around the topic of death and dying.

Care and support providers can apply for grants of up to $50,000 to support the delivery of quality improvement initiatives focused on the coordination of services for people living with a life-limiting condition.

The anticipated outcome is that more Tasmanians will feel comfortable talking about death and dying, have a better awareness of and access to palliative care and other services, and are more likely to receive end-of-life care where they would like to.

Please refer to the grant guidelines (also available via the Key documents widget) for further information about eligibility, out-of-scope activities and grant obligations.

Grant closing date has been EXTENDED to Friday 19 August 2022 5.00pm.
