What we do
Our awareness campaigns and education programmes aim to demystify death and dying; and build community capacity to support those dealing with the challenges of death, dying and bereavement.
Compassionate City Charter
“A compassionate city is a community that recognises that care for one another at times of crisis and loss is not simply a task solely for health and social services but is everyone’s responsibility.” Allan Kellehear
The ‘Compassionate City Charter’ is a guide to how towns, cities and communities can better respond to the social and practical needs of people affected by death, dying and bereavement.
We welcome all enquiries from individuals, groups and organisations in how they can get involved in making their community more compassionate.
We welcome groups, networks and organisations who want to improve community capacity to support those people affected by death, dying and bereavement. As members you will have access to the groups network, information and learning.
You do not need to belong to an organised group or organisation to join Compassionate Communities NI. We welcome all expressions of interest from people who are passionate about championing a compassionate approach to end of life matters. As an individual member you will have access to information, training and networking opportunities.
