Tweed Palliative Support is a well-established community run organisation that provides free support services for people living with a life-limiting illness.

The retreat provides accommodation and services for terminal individuals and their families, offering a welcoming home-like environment surrounded by the rainforest in their final days of life.

TPS receives minimal government funding and relies almost completely on community donations, income from its Op Shops, grants from local organisations and fundraising drives. TPS gives emphasis to end-of-life options and maintaining a high quality of life, which is why Attwood Marshall Lawyers has become involved in supporting such a worthy organization.

Aged Care We Care Appeal

Aged Care We Care Appeal

Attwood Marshall Lawyers has been a participant in the annual ‘Aged Care We Care’ Christmas Appeal for several years. As part of the charity drive, our staff collect gifts to be donated to elderly residents in aged care facilities and hospitals on the Gold Coast from November through to early December. Our lawyers love being able to do their bit to collect as many Christmas gifts as possible to contribute to this wonderful cause.

Sadly, many aged care residents don’t have any family or friends to celebrate this time of year with, which means many will not receive a gift for Christmas. The gifts touch the lives of those who feel lonely and forgotten.
