Demystifying Death Week – small grants and awards

Categories: Education.

Small Grants Available: Demystifying Death Week: A small grants fund has been set up to support organisations in Scotland to put on events as part of Demystifying Death Week.

Demystifying Death Week is about shining a light on death, dying and bereavement in Scotland.  The grant scheme is designed to support organisations and community groups to undertake activities that give people knowledge, skills and opportunities to plan and support each other with death, dying, loss and care.

We’re seeking applications of up to £250 from people who want to put on an event during DD Week. In previous years, events have included lunchtime get-togethers, information stands, film screenings, workshops, discussion groups, planning sessions, crematorium tours, craft sessions, lectures, art exhibitions, and death cafes.

The deadline for receipt of completed applications is 12pm on Wednesday 15 March 2023. More information including an application form is available here: DD Week Small Grants
