Being open about death

How we live is important to us and to those around us. Why should how we die be any different?

We want people to be able to speak openly about the different aspects of death and dying, to remove the stigma of the subject and instead give people the confidence to have lively conversations on the subject.

Between November 2020 and March 2021 we're running a series of virtual 'Death Fairs' as part of this process.

Each event has its own theme but they all contribute to the same aim of informing people and helping to take away the fear of death.

Attendees are free to share their personal experiences of death with others if they wish, using the respective and support space to help inform their thoughts about their own death.

The sessions are being delivered via Zoom between 6pm and 7pm, with a different topic each time, as follows:

Wednesday, November 25th: What don't I know about the legal and practical side of dying and death?

Wednesday, December 16th: How does medical and palliative care work for people at end of life?

Wednesday, January 27th: What might the last few days of life be like?

Wednesday, February 24th: What happens when someone has died?

Wednesday, March 24th: What is a Death Café and how does it work?
