The Scottish Compassionate Communities Network aims to provide care and support around death

1st October 2018 by Gareth Jones 0 Comments

A new Scotland-wide network is being launched to help those facing death and bereavement.

The Scottish Compassionate Communities Network will connect members with other like-minded people in their area to share ideas and experience.

It will also bring people together to create practical support and guidance on how to develop a Compassionate Community – a community that provides care and support for those facing death and bereavement.

The network is being set up by Good Life Good Death Good Grief, an alliance of individuals and organisations working to make Scotland more open and supportive around death, dying and bereavement. It is open anyone who would like to be practically involved in this area, regardless of experience, knowledge or background.

The network is being launched at the Greyfriars Charteris Centre in Edinburgh on 8 October. Guests will hear from Fiona Garven, director of the Scottish Community Development Centre, on community development approaches. There will also be group discussions about ways of taking practical action in communities.

You can sign up to the network online.
