About Us

We’re here and we care

PalAssist is a Queensland-wide, no-cost 24-hour telephone and online service for palliative care patients, carers, family and friends seeking practical information and emotional support.

Our charter is to provide accurate information, referral advice and compassionate support to those dealing with a life-limiting or terminal illness.

PalAssist is operated by a team of health professionals with nursing, social work and counselling experience. We understand that every person’s journey is different, and offer individualised support and advice to our clients.

The 24-hour service is funded by Queensland Health and provided by Cancer Council Queensland. We are always here to offer trusted advice, or simply to listen.
