Reinstatement of palliative care services for Limestone Coast

In 2015, the State Government announced major cuts to palliative care funding, including the loss of a local bereavement counsellor, which would impact Limestone Coast residents.

There was considerable community protest over this decision and Troy joined forces with a dynamic local group to take action over the cuts.

The campaign that followed was one of the Limestone Coast's strongest demonstrations of 'people power' and a petition with more than 9,000 signatures protesting the cuts was tabled by Troy to State Parliament.

In late 2015, the State Government reversed their decision and reinstated palliative services.

This was a major win for the people of the Limestone Coast.
