Palliative Care WA is a member-based not-for-profit organisation. Every member directly contributes to the capacity and sustainability of our role as your peak body.

Membership fees contribute to our ability to be a strong, independent and collective voice for the sector and ensure that our policy and advocacy positions reflect that of our members and the broader community.

The need for a strong voice to represent palliative care is greater than ever. The delivery of quality palliative care is being impacted by an ageing population with increasingly complex health conditions, technological advances in medicine and consumer directed care. A engaged and diverse membership base is critical to capture the needs of those operating in and around the palliative care space. Our membership is drawn from right across the sector and the State. Currently that includes palliative care, aged care and home care providers; health, disability and community service professionals; carers and health consumers; researchers and educators; policy makers; students and volunteers.

We need your support. For more information on the benefits of membership see below.
