Welcome to Tweed Palliative Support
Tweed Palliative Support (TPS) is an inclusive cancer support and palliative care charity that has recently opened NSW’s only adults’ community hospice, Wedgetail Retreat. Established in 1998, this multi award-winning organisation provides free and donation-based home-hospice support, respite and live-in hospice nursing care, loan of medical equipment, educational courses and Sunshine ‘Pamper’ Days for people living with cancer or a life-limiting illness and their families.
TPS offers best-practice, client-centred emotional and physical palliative care support. We work collaboratively with local health professionals and networks to provide these services to over 1200 residents of the Northern Rivers and beyond every year.
Not government funded – Can you help with $10/month?
Our registered nurses and trained volunteer palliative carers improve the quality of life of all our clients and provide them and their families with dedicated support in a beautiful environment.
Despite saving the government hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, our valued palliative care services are not state or federal government funded. So we need to raise over $500,000 each year to directly cover operational costs such as providing nursing and professional services, up-to-date medical equipment and nourishing hospice meals. By donating any amount, sponsoring or arranging a bequest, you will be helping people in the community when they need it most.
