Event Details

Would you like to be part of a worldwide social movement in building Compassionate Communities? If yes, then attend our funded community connector train-the-trainer workshop and learn from experts with lived experience in the field!

Perhaps  you are familiar with the Neighbourhood Watch movement to combat criminal activity. Because it was impossible to have a police station in every street corner, the community was activated into what is now called the Neighbourhood Watch.

Building compassionate communities follows the same principle. It is impossible to have hospices built in every suburb, hence the community will be mobilised to do our bit for the frail and elderly who lives alone, people with life limiting illnesses and for people who are grieving. They are not on their own. They are part of us. We have the responsibility to do our bit for them as a community.

Compassionate Communities is a globally recognised whole of community approach to improving the end-of-life experience for people by mobilising local networks, groups and services to be more conscious, aware and equipped to offer support.

Join our funded community connector train-the-trainer workshop!
