We mark the National Day of Reflection
Community Integrated Care has shown its support to today’s National Day of Reflection (23rd March), marking three years since the UK entered its first national lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Led by end-of-life charity, Marie Curie, the day serves to remember loved ones who’ve passed away, support people who are grieving, and connect with each other. For us, this includes reflecting on the much-loved members of our charity, who are forever part of Community Integrated Care.
As a charity, we encouraged all of our colleagues to observe today’s national minute’s silence at 12 noon, as an opportunity to remember the incredible sacrifices, bravery and commitment of our teams.
We also looked back at our charity’s Best Lives Possible Roadshow last year, where we had a ‘Tree of Remembrance’ – a special space dedicated to reflection, and for our colleagues to come together and remember.
In 2021, on the first National Day of Reflection, we launched Our Memory Wall, as a place for everyone connected to our charity to remember those we’ve lost and share stories, prayers and thoughts. You can add something to our wall, or just take a moment to reflect and remember those who have sadly passed away, by visiting it here.
Throughout the day, Marie Curie will be streaming free online talks and events, and workshops to offer support.
