Community Engagement Health Promotion

Banksia Palliative Care Service Inc.

Community Engagement Health Promotion

Strong links have been made with the community via media links and formal presentations to organisations.  Banksia is always looking for opportunities to enhance communication of the specialist services it provides.

We welcome any organisation who would like a speaker to attend and provide a presentation of the services Banksia provides.

We have presented to local Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, Seniors and Community Centres.  Many of these clubs are surprised as to the extent of the services Banksia provides and also of the large area Banksia covers.

As our staff and volunteers speak to any groups, the audience will hopefully become “champions” of Banksia to create awareness and much needed education throughout the community.

Our community focus is to empower our citizens to be aware of how they can help others during a challenging time of their lives, to access the services of Banksia, in a timely and appropriate manner. Please refer to “How to refer a client” Heading on Main Menu.

Banksia engages is many health promotion activities, we welcome any opportunities to speak to multi cultural groups.  We wish to recruit more volunteers who from diverse backgrounds and those who are bi-lingual

if you are a business or community organisation which is interested in being informed of the free 24 hour home based services provided by Banksia, including Advance Care Planning, please contact our Community Liaison Coordinator on 94550822.
