The GroundSwell Project


The way we die matters.

150,000 Australians die each year, not from sudden or unexpected death, but from pre-existing conditions. We have time to plan better. Despite numerous calls for change, Australians continue to die in ways we wouldn’t choose.

We want to change the way Australians talk about and plan for end of life.

  • 70% want to die at home, only 14% do.
  • 82% think it’s important to document EOL choices, but only 28% do.
  • Too many family members are uncertain about EOL decision-making and how best to plan for and implement care.

The GroundSwell Project exists to change this.

Why are we collecting funds?

The GroundSwell Project is a not for profit organisation.

We develop creative and profound ways to engage with death as an everyday part of life. Building a more death literate community.

We work with people of all ages. With schools, community groups, health services and the public to deliver our transformative projects and programs.

With your support we can continue to promote new conversations and community actions to change these statistics, because being death literate strengthens our ability to care, creating compassionate communities.
