Truacanta Online Events

Upcoming Workshops -

The Truacanta Project is delighted to announce three fortnightly online workshops - on 29th October, 12th & 26th November - for anyone looking to build on or interested in finding out more about compassionate communities work and work around death, dying and bereavement in Scotland:

  • Bringing death, dying and bereavement work online
  • A community development approach
  • Creating inclusive, accessible spaces

These interactive workshops will bring together like-minded people to hear from speakers, share their own successes and challenges, and create personal actions to take away.

COVID-19 - information for the public

We have published information for people in Scotland who may be worried that they, or someone they care about, is at increased risk of getting seriously ill and potentially dying from COVID-19.

The new webpages aim to answer questions people might have about:

  • What to expect if someone is in an 'increased' or 'high' risk category.
  • Care and treatment available for people at home, hospital and in care homes.
  • How decisions are made about care and treatment.
  • Plans people can make if they’re worried about becoming seriously ill with COVID-19.
  • How a friend or family member can help someone who is very ill (and potentially dying) from COVID-19.
  • What happens after someone dies.
Thanks to the clinicians, members of public and others who provided advice and opinion on this content. The new information can be accessed here: COVID-19 information - hoping for the best, planning for the worst

Compassionate Communities Week

In the light of the coronavirus outbreak, we've rearranged and refocused this year's awareness week. It will now be called Compassionate Communities Week and has been brought forward to 27 April - 3 May 2020.

We are using it to acknowledge, share and grow the compassion and innovation that so many communities are showing in response to COVID-19. Find out more here.
