Compassionate Communities celebrate life and claim this power by publicly encouraging, facilitating and supporting one another during life’s most testing moments and experiences.

Community has the natural power of social transformation!

This workshop will engage and educate you to find ways to promote emotional, social, physical and spiritual wellbeing for people who are frail, experiencing loss, are ageing, dying or grieving.

This FREE event helps interested local people come together to build a community partnership, and ultimately, a compassionate community.

The workshop enables participants to understand and identify practical approaches to establishing and maintaining networks to support people in our community
