There are two key positions for this project, the Compassionate Communities Capacity Builder and the Compassionate Communities Project Officer, the latter being located within the City of Albany. These roles will work closely with regional councils, community organisations, health services and local communities across the Great Southern to develop sustainable, collaborative end of life care by:

  • Promoting grief and loss as a normal part of life
