good life, good death, good grief

Truacanta: Scotland's Compassionate Communities Network


Truacanta: Scotland's Compassionate Communities Network is for people and organisations who want to get involved in practical work to build compassion in their own community, with a particular focus on improving people's experiences of deteriorating health, death, dying and bereavement.

The Truacanta network aims to provide opportunities for people to come together and share learning, experience, ideas and motivation.

The network promotes a community development approach, and is building on the work of the Truacanta Project.
