Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief

The SPPC leads public health palliative care work at a national level in Scotland, and established Good Life, Good Death, Good Death, Good Grief in November 2011 at the request of Scottish Government.

GLGDGG is an alliance of individuals and organisations working towards the common aim of raising public awareness of ways of dealing with death, dying and bereavement, and promoting community involvement in death, dying and bereavement. Its work is funded by the SPPC, and informed by a broad-based stakeholder group.

As the host organisation for GLGDGG, the SPPC undertakes GLGDGG-branded work to support wide-ranging membership activity. The approach is to engage and support individuals, communities and organisations identify their needs and develop the assets that they have available to them to meet these, with a goal of sustainably building resilient people and communities. This approach is grounded in Kellehear’s Health Promoting Palliative Care (HPPC) model.

GLGDGG acts as a support and a sounding board to enable individuals and organisations undertake the change they think needs to happen. Through awareness weeks and the To Absent Friends festival, GLGDGG creates opportunities designed to catalyse membership activity and create opportunity for local and national media engagement and dialogue.

GLGDGG works to identify and share good practice, and to provide leadership, ideas, networking opportunities, inspiration, practical tools and small grants. GLGDGG works to influence public policy, and also provides and signposts to resources for people who are dealing with death, dying and bereavement in a personal capacity.
