What we do

Through awareness and education we aim to demystify death and dying and empower communities to support those dealing with the challenges that are present at end of life and thereafter. We work to reclaim the ‘D’ word and to bring death back to life.

Compassionate City Charter

With commitment from Derry City and Strabane District Council to the ‘Compassionate City Charter’ together we are working to establish Derry~Londonderry as a ‘Compassionate City’.

We welcome all enquiries from individuals, groups and organisations in how they can get involved in making our city a ‘Compassionate City‘.

Community Membership

We welcome groups, networks and organisations who are passionate about making Northern Ireland compassionate communities with capacity to support those people impacted by death, dying and loss.  As members you will have access to the groups network, information and learning.

Individual Membership

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.
