good life, good death, good grief

What can I do?

By joining Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief, you become part of a network of like-minded people and organisations who share the belief that being more open about death is a good thing.

As a member, you will receive a copy of our newsletter, and be invited to any networking events we organise. Each year we invite members to get involved in two flagship activities:

Death Awareness Week Scotland

Every year in May, Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief holds an Awareness Week, providing individuals and organisations with an opportunity to promote the positives of living in a society where people can be open about dying, death and bereavement.

In previous years we have seen all kinds of events including death cafes, conferences, art exhibitions, information sessions, film screenings, craft workshops and before I die walls.

Awareness week only happens because individual members like you get involved and make it happen. More information about this year's awareness week is available here: Awareness Week 2017.

To Absent Friends Festival

People who have died remain a part of our lives – their stories are our stories, yet many Scottish traditions relating to the expression of loss and remembrance have faded over time.

To Absent Friends gives people across Scotland an excuse to remember, to tell stories, to celebrate and to reminisce about people we love who have died. To Absent Friends, a People's Festival of Storytelling and Remembrance is an opportunity to revive lost traditions and create new ones.

The next annual To Absent Friends festival will take place across Scotland from 1-7 November 2017, and we invite you to take part. More information is available here: To Absent Friends

Your ideas

You may have a clear idea about how you'd like to get involved. If you want to discuss your ideas with us, please feel free to get in touch. We do what we can act as a support and a sounding board, to help individuals and organisations undertake the change they think needs to happen. We are always keen to hear from members, and to update our project blog with current activities.
