Compassionate communities can be described as a community response and acknowledges the role of informal care as well as formal care as equal partners in supporting individuals living towards the end of their lives and their carers.
Murray Hall Community Trust as a community development organisation first developed an end of life care service called ‘Bridges’ over twenty years, working with community members to address their concerns for the need to support people dying in the community. Since then, we have developed many compassionate communities initiatives, to increase the confidence and capacity within the community around death, dying and loss.
