good life, good death, good grief


Launch of the Scottish Compassionate Communities Toolkit

Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief and the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care have launched the Scottish Compassionate Communities Toolkit. The toolkit is a collection of resources for people wishing to make their local community more supportive of people going through difficult times that can come with death, dying, loss and care.

The toolkit brings together work from across Scotland and beyond, providing ideas to help people develop their own projects addressing local experiences of death, dying, loss and care.

The toolkit includes sections exploring...
