See Details of All Past/Future events (some  independently organised ) 

Family friendly events, workshops and talks that will entertain, inform, intrigue and equip us all, to better deal with Death, Dying and Loss.

Death does happen to everyone - our family, colleagues, friends, teachers & of course, ourselves.


It is not talked about much, unless it is actually happening, and then, not always.


What do you say to someone who is dying? How do you find meaning in your life now? What can make anything better when a friend has just died? Who should apply for Power of Attorney? 

For some background to all these events, here is Debs' TedX Talk on Why End of Life Care Matters



The Health Profession isn't always good at talking about dying - you may have to help them. Equipping people with insights & knowledge on how they can prepare, means less worry all round. Knowing what questions to ask & how you can help.
 

Allowing people to tell their story is healing. Come and share yours

These events have been co-ordinated and mainly run by volunteers.
