Initiative Overview

This program aims to financially support local palliative care patients to undertake an activity or experience that they wish to complete towards the end of their life.

Friends of Palliative Care will contribute up to $200 per patient to assist with making this ‘bucket list’ experience possible.

Criteria for Funding

To receive funding, individuals must be receiving palliative care and residing in the Local Health Areas of Maitland, Cessnock, Kurri Kurri, Singleton and Dungog.

Referrals must come from a health care provider or a palliative care/patient support group or volunteer organisation.

Payment will only be made to third party experience providers, or given in the form of a voucher.

How to request a Bucket List Experience

A referral form must be completed by the referrer. This can be requested via our email. The referrer must be able to liaise between our volunteers and the patients to facilitate the experience. Once a referral is received, our volunteers will process and action this request, and organise payment for the chosen activity if all criteria are met.

For enquiries or to request a new referral form, email us at
