Many of our patients face significant hardship – but some experience disadvantage so extreme that they cannot meet their most basic needs.

Even a hot shower, a mobile phone and groceries can be out of reach for these patients.

This directly threatens their survival or can cause them great discomfort when suffering from a chronic or terminal illness.

Through the Greatest Need Project, you can help provide practical help by donating to Patients in Greatest Need.

We also need your help to fund research into the many conditions affecting the communities of the West of Melbourne.
