good life, good death, good grief

Online resources

Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief has produced a set of resources for members who want to work to make Scotland a place where people can be open about and support each other through death, dying and bereavement.

Resources include:

The 100%Project

The 100% Project is a community engagement project set up by the Children's Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) which aims to start conversations about death, dying and bereavement in a life-affirming way. They have produced a short film in which parents who have lost a child talk of the importance of being open about death, dying and bereavement.

  • Leaflets providing support and advice to enable people to have open and honest conversations around death, dying and bereavement
  • Details of a number of books designed to help people deal with death, dying and bereavement
  • A range of information leaflets providing ideas about what different groups and organisations (including community groups, funeral directors, financial institutions, legal organisations, hospices, care homes and schools) can do to promote greater awareness of and involvement in death, dying and bereavement
  • Difficult Conversations guidance aiming to help anyone caring for someone with dementia to open up conversations about end of life wishes
