Scottish Charity Awards Finalists

We are delighted to find out that the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care is a finalist in the 2015 Scottish Charity Awards. To Absent Friends, a people's festival of storytelling and remembrance, has been shortlisted for the Cracking Campaign category.

Organised by Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), the Awards celebrate the amazing work of charities, community groups and people across Scotland who dedicate themselves to making Scotland a better place to live.

Being shortlisted for this award is fantastic recognition of the work of SPPC and Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief members across Scotland.

To Absent Friends provided opportunities for people across Scotland to remember and tell stories about dead loved ones. It was born out of a desire to address some of the social isolation experienced by people who’ve been bereaved.

Martin Sime, Chief Executive, SCVO, said:

“All the finalists have shown that they go the extra mile to help others. So much of that work goes unseen and unheard, but the Scottish Charity Awards shines a light on it so we can all say a big thank you.”

Your vote counts

All shortlisted entries will also compete for the People’s Choice Award which will be decided by the public. Winning this award would be a great boost to the profile of the important work underway across Scotland to build a culture that is more open and supportive when it comes to death, dying and bereavement. To make sure To Absent Friends is in with a chance of winning, please go to the SCVO website to cast your vote.
