Grants programme to get Scots talking about death, dying and bereavement

Categories: Community Engagement.

Grants of up to £500 are available to help support the work of Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief (GLGDGG). Only members of GLGDGG can apply for a grant – however, membership is open to all organisations and individuals who wish to support the aims and objectives of GLGDGG.

Specifically, the programme is aiming to fund projects that:

  • help people to find ways of dealing with their own experiences of death, dying and bereavement
  • help individuals and communities to support those who are experiencing difficult times associated with death, dying and bereavement
  • support NHS and social care staff and volunteers to work compassionately and constructively with those who are dying or have been recently bereaved 
  • help people to make practical preparations for their death, for example Will, Power of Attorney and Advance Care Planning
  • promote openness/discussion of death, dying and bereavement.

The closing date for grant applications is Monday 8 April 2013 to ensure that funding can be provided for activities taking place during the Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief Awareness Week (13 to 19 May 2013) however, funding is also available for activities taking place outside of the awareness week.

Further information and application guidance is available on the GLGDGG website.
