Thinking of narratives for volunteer recruitment, I wonder how useful the concept of compassionate communities will be?
- Dying Matters: why we should develop compassionate communities?
- Compassionate communities: end-of-life care as everyone’s responsibility - article in QJM by the originator of compassionate communities, Professor Allan Kellehear
- Ambitions for Palliative and End of Life Care: A national framework for local action 2015-2020, by the National Palliative and End of Life Care Partnership of which the MND Association is a member. See in particular chapter 6 which is all about volunteers
- Blog post on Marie Curie about Prof Kellehear's ideas and its implications for their work.
