100% of your donation will help those receiving palliative care at home. Although the majority of our funding comes from Government sources, EPC also relies on community fundraising, bequests and donations to maintain the wide array of free* services and programs we provide to clients, care givers and families.
You can donate directly to EPC and choose from one of our appeals below.
We also invite you to participate in or donate to our annual fun run POUND THE PAVEMENT 4 EPC. Join us to remember, thank and support loved ones and the work that EPC do. Register or donate here
Your gift will be used across all areas of client care.
Equipment For Home Appeal
Your gift will go towards the cost of securing specialised equipment for our clients to use in their home so they can avoid going to a hospice or hospital and die at home if that is their wish. EPC assists families to access this equipment, which is often urgently required and sometimes hard to source on short notice.
The 'Equipment for Home Appeal' will help EPC in three important ways:
1. To purchase vital equipment for client use, so that it is readily on hand.
2. To assist with the cost to maintain, repair, store and clean our equipment.
3. To continue replenishing the stocks of essential, everyday pieces of equipment for our palliative care nurses, so they have the tools they need to take to client visits.
We aim to raise $60,000 to meet these essential needs of our clients. (Please note that we cannot accept donated second hand equipment.)
All funds raised by POUND THE PAVEMENT 4 EPC will go to EPC's 'Equipment for Home Appeal' #ptp4epc
Stay at Home Appeal
Over the last 3 years, demand for EPC’s services has increased at a higher rate than our government funding. Many of our clients wish to stay at home for as long as they can instead of going to a hospital or hospice and we work hard to help fulfil this wish. Your considerate gift will assist us to fund the key areas of EPC that are essential for clients to stay at home and will help to fill our funding gap.
Overnight Respite Nurse Appeal
Please donate to EPC's Overnight Respite Nurse Appeal. If a client meets the criteria, we can arrange for a Registered Nurse to stay in the home overnight. The nurse provides the required care so the carer can get much needed rest knowing their loved one is well looked after. This enables more people to die at home, if that is their wish, instead of needing to be transferred to a hospital. Demand for this service is very high and EPC currently has limited funding to run this program.
