Understanding Compassionate Communities

What makes up a compassionate community? This forum will explore the compassionate community approach and provide tips on how to set one up.

  • Tuesday 9 June, 10–11:30am

Compassionate Communities is an international movement which recognises that care for one another at times of crisis and loss is not just for health and social services. Rather, it is everyone’s responsibility. These communities focus on developing a network of care to support individuals approaching the end of their life as well as their families. This forum will provide information on what makes up a compassionate community and how to set one up.

Understanding Compassionate Communities will be presented by Sheila Twine and facilitated by our CEO, Lana Glogowski. Sheila has a passion for engaged and connected communities. She is involved with Pets of Older Persons (POOPs), a volunteer led, not for profit organisation that keeps older people and their pets together, and has initiated a range of community projects and services in her own Mandurah region.
