Diane Wright – Founder

Through many years of unwavering effort, Diane’s vision of creating a respite and palliative care facility in a homelike environment has been realised. Her commitment to seeing the community hospice project culminate in a functioning facility has seen her meet with hundreds of community leaders, politicians, service groups and people across South West Victoria to advocate on behalf of Anam Cara House.

Through her efforts, and those of a dedicated team of volunteers and supporters, the community rallied and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the initial purchase and fit-out of Anam Cara House Colac.

Without Diane’s vision and dedication, Anam Cara House would not exist.

“It’s come together as a result of ordinary people doing extraordinary things”.
