Compassionate Community Conversations

Country SA PHN is thrilled to be funding Palliative Care South Australia in hosting the Statewide Compassionate Community Conversation Series, featuring FREE morning teas across South Australia in November 2023.

This will be the largest series of compassionate community conversations ever held in South Australia. EVERYONE IS INVITED.  It’s a chance for everyone to join the conversation and discuss how together we can build a compassionate community in your local neighborhood. Compassionate communities are communities with networks of support around people experiencing a serious illness, ageing, disability, dying, grief, and caregiving.

You will receive information and participate in discussions about compassionate communities, including how to become a more compassionate neighbour and friend, what services and supports are currently available and explore what compassionate communities could look like within your local neighbourhood.

Do you know people who are experiencing a serious illness, ageing, disability, dying, grief and/or caregiving (either personally or professionally) then it is essential for you to attend this morning tea.

Located at 9 communities across country South Australia:

  • Victor Harbor - Wednesday, 1 November 2023
  • Mount Barker - Friday, 3 November 2023
  • Mt Gambier - Friday, 10 November 2023

“Country SA PHN is proud to fund and support Palliative Care South Australia through Compassionate Communities activities to assist our South Australian country communities to support each other at the end stage of life”, said Mark Hartigan Chief Executive Officer Country SA PHN. Caring for someone is not only about their medical care - community groups, friends, and colleagues all play an essential role in supporting each other.”

We look forward to seeing you there.
