good life, good death, good grief

History, Rationale and Influences

Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief is part of the international Public Health Palliative Care movement, and we aim to contribute to and learn from international developments in the field.

The work of GLGDGG has been heavily influenced by the ideas of Professor Allan Kellehear, and has taken inspiration from ‘Health Promoting Palliative Care’, ‘Compassionate Cities’ and ‘Compassionate Communities’ models.

Most recently, our work programme has been shaped by the views of relevant stakeholders from across Scotland, as set out within our 2018 report A Road Less Lonely.

Our work is guided by a community development approach – we aim to encourage and support individuals, communities and organisations to undertake the change they think needs to happen within their own communities.
