Victorian Councils Supporting Communities Around End of Life Project
The Victorian Councils: Supporting Communities Around End of Life Project aims to -
- build the organisational capacity of councils around end-of-life
- build community capacity in end-of-life support through local government structures and networks
- improve community understanding of healthier approaches to death, dying and bereavement, and evaluate the effectiveness of this approach.
The intent of the project is to explore how local government can play a role in building capacity of communities to better accept that dying is part of life and encourage more Victorians to actively participate in caring and supporting people at the end of their lives at home and in their community.
