A project exploring what makes Sheffield ‘compassionate’ when it comes to end of life care.
Project lead: Claire Craig, Helen Fisher
Funded by: Research England
Partners: Sheffield City Council
Compassionate Communities are networks of support comprising of family, friends, neighbours and community members; they are the foundation of what matters most to those undergoing experiences of death, dying, loss and care giving. A Compassionate City builds on this, covering the civic aspect of our lives; how we can become engaged in compassionate activities in the workplace, churches and temples, our educational institutions etc. Lab4Living are working with the council and organisations across the city to achieve a Compassionate City status in line with the Compassionate City Charter.
