It's Dying Matters Awareness Week May 11-17, & we wanted to bring you something topical.
Rosie Inman-Cook will be introducing the role of The Natural Death Centre and then talk more specifically about their reponse in these Covid times. There are a lot of myths out there and she will give you the chance to find out what is actually happening - how have the rules changed and what we can do differently.
You will have the chance to post questions that she will answer during the session. Rosie has many years experience in the Natural Death Movement. She values liasing with the public to inform them of all options available, including pragmatic advice on DIY funerals. She has a passion for making sure that choices are available for all families.
