TayPEOLC Projects

The TayPEOLC MCN is engaged in supporting a number of palliative & end of life care projects in Tayside.

These include:


The MCN has recently begun a piece of collaborative work with colleagues in Perth & Kinross HSCP (led by Emma Oram, Learning and Development Officer , Perth and Kinross Council) as part of the Truacanta Project . This is a new Scottish Parternship for Palliative Care (SPPC) initiative to support local communities across Scotland who are interested in taking action to improve people's experiences of death, dying , loss and care. Perth & Kinross is one of 11 shortlisted Truacanta 'communities'. Further will be held in the coming weeks with colleagues in education around the MCN proposal which is to work with primary school children to capture their imagination in creating artwork around loss and grief, thinking about how some people are not going to get better, and what this means to them. Through the children’s pictures and words, the aim is to promote human relational care and practical kindness as a key asset in compassionate communities. The artwork can then become a resource to be shared widely for people who have been bereaved. This blog provides further information about this and the other project ideas which form part of the short-listed Perth & Kinross Trauacanta 'community':
