The 100% Project is run by CHAS and includes a range of activities and events from its launch on 1 March 2013 throughout the year.
The 100% Project aims to:
- Promote positive attitudes to death, dying and bereavement
- To start to tackle the silence and isolation experienced in relation to death, dying and bereavement
- To raise awareness of the issues amongst those involved with CHAS, including service users, our teams and the public, and develop people’s skills and confidence in this area
- Start conversations
- Promote community involvement and understanding of issues relating to life-shortening conditions
- Be creative and imaginative in its approach but at all times sensitive and appropriate.
There is anecdotal evidence that families who use CHAS experience isolation and stress through the issues of death, dying and bereavement not being communicated well or at all. CHAS has a responsibility to play a part in helping to challenge societal views on these issues in the hope that this will make communication with and for families that little bit easier.
