Compassionate Communities Australia

March 26 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

What are Compassionate Communities

Caring, dying, grieving is everyone’s responsibility


Join with us to explore the role of Compassionate Communities in weaving compassion and connection across Australia as we live, die and grieve together.

Compassionate Communities Australia is about bringing together all of this excellent work to date and building on it together, with a focused and strategic approach for the next 10 years and beyond.

In this forum we will explore how we can work together to affect social and system change in the short and medium term with a focus on:

  • Advocacy and policy development
  • Research and promoting the evidence
  • Building partnerships
  • Education and development of resources
  • Establishing community led programs

The Power of Your Voice | Harpreet Kalsi-Smith – Director, Compassionate Communities Australia

Light lunch provided.

You can attend this forum in person or online.

We need to ensure that wherever we are, and whoever we are, compassionate support will be found in all aspects of our lives and deaths.
