Truacanta Project Report published

The Truacanta Evaluation Report has been published. The report presents the findings from this four-year 'compassionate communities' project which used a community development approach to support five communities to improve local experiences of death, dying, loss and care.

The report reflects on the impact achieved and learning gained from the project, which ran from 2019-2023.  You can read the full report here: Truacanta Evaluation Report

The Truacanta Project was set up to support local communities in Scotland who were interested in taking community action to improve people’s experiences of death, dying, loss and care, using a community development approach. The project was funded by Macmillan Cancer Support and run by the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care. 

Groups in Ayrshire, Dundee, Highland, North Berwick and Perthshire were supported through Truacanta to build their own local compassionate community activity. The Evaluation Report shows that 

  • four out of five of the local projects had clear positive impact at a local level, despite the challenges of establishing a new project during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • progress had been made in all the intended outcome areas set out at the start of the project
  • projects have left valuable legacies within their communities
  • much local work will be sustained beyond the life of the Truacanta Project
