The Yarra Ranges Community Death Care Collective is a local grassroots organisation consisting of passionate and dedicated Industry professionals and a diverse range of local community members who believe in engaging and empowering the community around death, dying and bereavement.
Our goal is to provide events, activities and resources that focus on exploring knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards death and bereavement, invoking curiosity, and stimulating death and grief literacy for social, ecological and cultural change around death and dying.
We aim to:
· Engage and empower the community around all aspects of death, dying and bereavement
· Educate and resource the community to be able to make informed end of life choices
· Create an ecology of care and build compassionate communities that are willing and able to respond to death and loss in supportive, constructive, conscious and meaningful ways
Hosting our annual Dying to Know Expo on 8th August every year provides an opportunity to stimulate the community around this important topic and draw attention to our Collective and the community service we are offering.
This event is part of a larger vision for ongoing consistent access to information, resources and support.
