good life, good death, good grief

How do we work?

Membership of the Alliance is open to all organisations and individuals who wish to support the aims and objectives of Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief. The aims of the Alliance will be achieved by the work of members, using their own time and resources.

We believe that different groups and communities within Scotland will have different strengths, weaknesses, problems and priorities relating to death, dying and bereavement – what might work for one community may be completely inappropriate for another. We believe that groups and communities themselves will know best what their strengths, weaknesses, problems and priorities are.

Therefore much of the work of Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief is determined and undertaken by members themselves.

This website, and the GLGDGG stakeholder group, can provide ideas, direction, co-ordination and networking, but members have their own ideas about what is needed in their area, and undertake the work required themselves.

Bottom up and locally relevant

We expect that many members will bring to the Alliance their own unique experiences and views relating to death, dying and bereavement. We expect that many members will have their own ideas about what needs to change in Scotland, and how this should be done.

The Alliance can act as a support, a sounding board, and a network of like-minded people, to help individuals and organisations undertake the change they think needs to happen.

Some members will agree with what Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief is trying to achieve, but be less clear about what they can do to support this. With the hope of providing some inspiration and ideas for these members, we have produced resources, a media pack, and a selection of activities that members can consider undertaking.

We want to record the activities of all members on this website because:

  • This could help others can gain ideas, encouragement and inspiration from work already under way
  • Hearing the views and experiences of members will help the Alliance to direct its activities to areas that are useful and relevant
