Description

Bundanoon: Building a Compassionate Community

Meeting 2

Bundanoon has been selected to be part of The Groundswell Project’s Compassionate Communities Forum. Let’s chat about what this means for Bundanoon!

The Compassionate Community movement is changing how we talk about and deal with illness, death, dying and grief. In general, our fear of death stops us from accepting and planning for a good end of life. This fear can stop us from living a great life, but being a part of a Compassionate Community can help.

Come along and contribute to what we can do better and differently to make Bundanoon a Compassionate Community.

You can expect to:

  • Contribute to a global movement focused on building compassionate communities
  • Find out facts about death and dying in our region
  • Hear about research on how compassionate communities can make a difference for people at end of life and their families
  • Meet other people and share your experiences of illness, death, dying and grief
  • Help start Bundanoon’s Compassionate Community plan
  • Meet others, have afternoon tea and a few laughs

What do we need to do? Formalise mintues from the last meeting, and establish the framework or structure for our work into the future.

What is a Compassionate Community? A community that recognises care for one another in times of health crisis and personal loss is not simply a task solely for health and social services but is everyone’s responsibility.

What is The Groundswell Project? The Groundswell Project aim to create a more death literate society, by shifting the focus from 'talking about it' to transforming this 'difficult' conversation into one of deep community engagement, social action and empowerment.

All welcome, including friends from Exeter, Sutton Forest, Penrose and Wingello!
