Building on the success of the Big Conversation conference in 2016, we are delighted to invite you to the Compassionate City Conference on Thursday 17 May 2018 at Boringdon Park Golf Club – hosted by St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth as part of Dying Matters Awareness week.
A compassionate city is a community that recognises that care for one another at times of crisis and loss is not simply a task solely for health and social services but is everyone’s responsibility.
The conference will give a global perspective of Compassionate Cities for all and explore the Compassionate City Charter for End of Life and research with renown author “Compassionate Cities: Public Health and End of Life Care” and Professor of Sociology and Palliative Care, Professor Allan Kellehear.
There will also be an opportunity to learn about the exciting work we have achieved as an organisation with local partners and communities since the Big Conversation conference in 2016 including work in prisons and with the homeless.
The benefits to our city
This year the conference is a call to action and aims to bring together Plymouth’s key institutions, local businesses and community organisations to give the city an opportunity share ideas on what can you do to empower communities, strengthen partnerships and develop resilient supportive compassionate networks for end of life in schools, workplaces/businesses, places of worship, social spaces and local communities.
This is a rare opportunity for you to network with diverse sectors in city, including:
- Community groups and networks
- Schools, colleges and universities
- Employers looking to support their workforce
- Those that want to support individuals and carers
- Art sector and groups
- Local authorities
