good life, good death, good grief

Scottish Compassionate Communities Network

Our Everyday Compassion conference in April saw over 200 delegates gather to discuss ways to encourage more open and supportive attitudes and behaviours towards death, dying and bereavement in Scotland.

In feedback, many said they would like to maintain the momentum and get involved in practical work to build compassion in their own community. We are therefore collecting contact details of people who would be interested in working with others in their local area to create a Compassionate Community. We can then share contact details, enabling people to get in touch with other like-minded people in their own area.

Eventually, we hope to build on this to establish a Scottish Compassionate Communities Network, where learning, ideas and inspiration can be shared across Scotland. We will also explore what GLGDGG might be able to do to provide further, practical support to those wishing to create compassionate communities. If you would like to be involved in local work, or would like to be involved in the new Scottish Compassionate Communities Network, please complete this online form.
