Compassionate Communities

Welcome!

The experiences of death, dying, loss and care affect us all, but they are never easy to deal with. Talking about them is difficult and we often don’t know how we might help someone even when we want to. But not facing up to such important parts of life only makes it harder for everyone.

How we talk together about death and dying, how we support and care for each other through illness , loss and grief, makes a difference to our health, our families, our communities and to how we live our lives.

The Compassionate Communities Project wants to help make it easier to talk and to take positive action by supporting communities, groups and individuals;

To discuss death, dying, loss and care
To reflect on what it means to them and the people around them
To take positive action

Discuss therapy plans and the health benefits of various ideas such as reborn baby dolls and what cases studies have shown.
