WA Forum – let’s Build a Compassionate & Connected WA.
The South West Compassionate Communities Network is hosting the Compassionate Communities WA Forum on Saturday, 7 August 2021 at Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre. This state-wide forum brings together community members, health and community service providers, local government, researchers, and policymakers to share best-practice examples. Hear from national and international speakers on how to:
- Develop a compassionate community and be prepared for the challenges;
- Build partnerships with palliative care and other health services;
- Build partnerships with local government;
- Develop a compassionate city charter;
- Expand the role of the community in supporting the bereaved and improving grief literacy.
Participants will leave the forum equipped with skills, resources, and ideas that contribute to the development of a connected community where loss and grief is acknowledged as part of everyday life.
Compassionate Communities is an international movement. It recognises that care for one another at times of crisis and loss is not just a task for health and social services- it is everyone’s responsibility. The South West Compassionate Communities Network supports a socially connected community that values the overall health and well-being of everyone, making the South West a better place to live and die.
