Good Grief Connects began in March 2022 and aimed to change society’s attitude towards grief, death and dying.

It was a two-year project led by researchers from the Palliative and End of Life Research Group at the University of Bristol.

With funding from The National Lottery Community Fund (the largest funder of community activity in the UK), the project helped to shift the public conversation around death and grief and create a more inclusive, compassionate and open society. More information available here.


‘Supporting minoritised ethnic communities across Wales with grief and bereavement’.

This is one-day event brought together stakeholders from diverse backgrounds across Wales to discuss successes, challenges and goals for the future in supporting people from minoritised ethnic communities in Wales with death, dying and grief.  

It took place on 6th December at Cardiff City Stadium. Throughout the day there were speakers from community organisations, time to network, and an opportunity to participate in research.  

Analysis is currently underway with findings to be shared soon.
