Training Courses

Our interactive courses aim to increase understanding of the importance of planning for the last years of life. They equip participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to initiate conversations about death, dying and end of life care planning as well as increase their knowledge of advance care planning and their role within the advance care planning process.

Many of us don't have the opportunity to talk openly about death with others yet there may be many things we would like to think about and discuss. A death cafe provides the space to do just that.

At our Death Cafes people, usually strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. It is simply an opportunity to talk about death in a safe and comfortable environment with no agenda, objectives or themes. We keep our groups small so it is easy to share stories, thoughts or worries, or simply just listen.

Pat, who has previously attended one of our Death Cafes says:

 
"It is a great opportunity to talk about a subject that preoccupies us all. Give it a go, you might be pleasantly surprised."
