Our Services

Compassion   Integrity   Humanity

Collaboraide exists to help improve the health and wellbeing of people facing loss, grief and isolation in our community.  We do this by contributing to meaningful social change at an individual, group, community and societal level.


We work flexibly, to gather relevant knowledge and bring the right people to the table to drive evidence-informed projects rich in the voice of the lived experience.


Our multidisciplinary experience in behavioural science research, social work and project management - across hospitals, universities, government and non-for-profits - affords us a rare perspective when it comes to witnessing and responding to death, dying and bereavement.


We deliver deeply meaningful outcomes for those with a lived experience, but we also support the professionals who deliver services.


Compassion is central to our work - Integrity is at the core of all we do - and Humanity guides the way.


Specialist knowledge and guidance in the context of palliative care, loss, grief and bereavement in the form of:

  • Individual or group supervision and mentoring

  • Project and research consultancy




  • We listen deeply

  • We lead 'difficult conversations' with humanity and integrity

  • We work alongside compassionate networks 

  • We speak the languages of different sectors and institutions

  • We don’t supply tokenistic advice – we create shared understanding
