How can communities support people through death, dying, loss and care?

Type: News Item Date Published: 7th May 2019

A new project is inviting community groups and organisations to submit expressions of interest.

‘Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief’ has launched a new initiative which will work with up to four communities in Scotland to develop activities designed to improve people’s experiences of death, dying, loss and care.

‘The Truacanta project’ will take a community development approach, supporting communities to make the most of their existing enthusiasm, strengths, skills and resources and take practical actions that improve experiences for local people.

Those involved are currently inviting expressions of interest from any individual, project, group or organisation interested in applying to be part of the project.

From those, a number will be shortlisted and supported to put together a full application. From those, up to four communities will be selected in December and supported to plan and develop activities to begin in March 2020, and over a two year period after that.

The deadline for submitting an expression of interest is 15th June.
