Good Grief Connects began in March 2022 and aims to change society’s attitude towards grief, death and dying.
It is a two-year project being 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 will help to shift the public conversation around death and grief and create a more inclusive, compassionate and open society. More information available here.
We would like to invite you to a special learning and network event on the theme of ‘Supporting minoritised ethnic communities across Wales with grief and bereavement’.
This is one-day event will bring together stakeholders from diverse backgrounds across Wales to discuss your successes, challenges and goals for the future in supporting people from minoritised ethnic communities in Wales with death, dying and grief.
It will be taking place on 6th December at Cardiff City Stadium. Throughout the day there will be speakers from community organisations, time to network, and an opportunity to participate in research.
There is no registration fee and we hope that as many people as possible can attend. We anticipate a lot of interest, so please register soon if you would like to come. If you register and can then can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket to free the space for someone else. Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day, and there will be the opportunity to share information about your service or work.
Places are limited, so please register by clicking here to reserve your space.
We would be very grateful if you could please spread the word in your network (nationally but particularly in Wales).
