Abstract

In this paper, we set out to do three things. First, we will explore some ideas about what is meant by the two key words 'community' and 'participation'. Second, we give examples of 'community participation' in palliative care, particularly in relation to the involvement of young volunteers. Third, we consider the evaluation of the approach and the implications of this for service development. In doing so, we draw on some concepts from the social sciences, as well as the comparative perspectives of the International Observatory in End of Life Care.[1]
