Be part of the Nurse Maude Story

Every day of every year the Nurse Maude Hospice provides specialist palliative care and support free of charge to patients and their families.

We provide nursing and homecare to some of the most vulnerable in our community. Every dollar goes into providing care for those who need us most…in our hospital, our hospice, clinics, schools and in your community.

Ways to get involved

Your support makes a world of difference. Thanks to a large group of dedicated and generous people in the community Nurse Maude is able to deliver a depth of care that would be otherwise impossible.

Your contribution, no matter how small or large makes a difference.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would be interested in getting involved either financially or through volunteering.

Get amongst it and volunteer

More than 300 volunteers donate their time, skills and thousands of hours of their time to Nurse Maude each and every year, working in our Hospice Shops, Hospital and Hospice and fundraising.

If you would like to join them please contact Volunteer Services on 03 375 4230 or email .  Volunteers must be aged 14 years and over, and those under the age of 18 must have parental consent.

Giving forward

When you choose to support Nurse Maude, you’re choosing to get behind a truly community focussed operation. Nurse Maude provides a level of care that’s unique and extremely sought after in the health sector.

Every dollar you commit to Nurse Maude will be leveraged to have a direct and personal impact in the lives of those we hold dear and much needed care to the most vulnerable in our community.

Your generosity is incredible!

Financial support through bequests and giving

Every year Nurse Maude receives bequests from those who would like to continue supporting our work for generations to come.

These legacies of care are what enables us to help fund large capital projects such as the Nurse Maude Hospital, subsidise the care that our patients and their families receive in the Nurse Maude Hospice and advance the research, development and technology required to provide quality nursing care in the community.

To discuss  how your bequest can support some of the most vulnerable in our community contact Sue Sutherland on (03) 375 4288 or email
