Funds donated through this site will either be directed to assist patients in the greatest need – or to support research.

Where your funds go will depend on your selection.

If you select ‘Patients in greatest need’, your donation will help to fund support for patients facing severe hardship, often so extreme that it could directly affect their survival or increase their discomfort from a chronic or terminal illness. Some of our patients have been affected by family violence and need practical support for themselves or their children in the immediate aftermath following a presentation to hospital. These are just some examples of the needs we hope to address with your help.

Your research donation will be allocated by our Office of Research OR you can choose to directly support the Western Health Chronic Disease Alliance if that is your selection.

The team members within Community Services are skilled at assessing the extreme need of patients who have been referred to them.

How many patients can be supported will depend on the funds donated through the Greatest Need site. Please give generously.
