To bring together a community that is compassionate and recognises that the natural cycles of sickness and health, birth and death, and love and loss occur every day and it is everyone’s responsibility to care for each other in times of crisis and loss.
An event that brings the community together;

• community and volunteer groups who support, assist and care for the dying, their families and loved ones
• health care organisations who provide services to support individuals, families and carers through death and dying
• general public who may have experienced, are experiencing and are interested in learning more about the regional resources available around grief, death and dying.
Dr Kerrie Noonan is the guest speaker, CoFounder of The Groundswell Project at the luncheon as well as Dr David Brumley, Director Ballarat Hospice Care.
