Compassionate Communities

Vintage Blacon is exploring the idea of developing a Compassionate Community Service in Blacon, Chester.

Inspired by an idea by Professor Allan Kellehear (Director of the Centre for Death at Bath University) it is a befriending scheme, supported by volunteers, keeping people with long term health conditions integrated in community life.

Members of Vintage Blacon attended workshops and presentations at St. Luke's Hospice, Cheshire and Mayfair Centre, Church Stretton to gain an understanding of how the Compassionate Community (CoCo) model is being worked out within their locations.
