The Truacanta Project is about helping communities unleash their compassion and find ways to help each other with death, dying, loss and care. It is part of the Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief initiative, which promotes more open and supportive attitudes and behaviours relating to death, dying and bereavement in Scotland.
The Truacanta Project is a new initiative being run by the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care, and funded by Macmillan Cancer Support. The project will support local communities across Scotland who are interested in taking community action to improve people’s experiences of death, dying, loss and care. More information about the Truacanta project is available here.
A Knowledge Sharing Workshop with interested parties to establish what is missing and needed in Dundee is taking place next Wednesday – 20th November – between 1pm and 3.30pm in the Roseangle Kitchen Cafe, 132 Perth Road and lunch will be provided.
This is a community event, connecting people in Dundee who have a mutual interest in improving people’s experiences of death, dying, loss and care. All are welcome to get your views on :
• What are your priorities and experiences?
• What do you think is missing?
• How can we make talking about death and dying easier?
• Where should we start?
• Who else should be involved?
Please come along and share your ideas about how members of the community, third sector organisations, health and social care teams, and universities can work better together in this area.
Please book a place here.
