Donate to our Equipment Hire Financial Hardship Appeal                                                               

EPC no longer receives the government funding that was used to subsidise equipment hire fees for clients in financial hardship. Having the right equipment at home allows EPC clients to stay there, rather than having to go to a hospital or hospice.  Often the need for this is sudden and urgent. Some clients cannot afford to cover the hire cost or the transport of it to their home. Donations to this Appeal will go into an internal fund to assist clients that qualify for this extra financial support. EPC cannot accept any donations of equipment as we do not have storage or maintenance facilities and it is not advisable under COVID regulations.

Donate to our Overnight Respite Services Program Appeal                                                             

EPC provides a qualified nurse for up to 3 nights when clients are nearing the end of life. There is an increasing demand for this service as many of our clients wish to spend their last days at home. 

Donate to our COVID-19 Response Appeal                                                                                             

EPC has made many changes to keep our clients and staff safe including the purchase of extra equipment, PPE and ongoing extra cleaning. Your donation will help us with some of this unexpected expense. 

Who we are                                                                                                                                              

EPC cares for those who have been diagnosed with a terminal condition, with little or no prospect of cure, and for whom the primary treatment goal is quality of life. We also work with and support their carers. Our services are delivered in the clients’ home and are free-of-charge*.
