Dying Matters Training Course

How to have sensitive conversations around death, dying and bereavement

Do you work with people approaching end of life and find it difficult to hold conversations around death, dying and loss?

The Dying Matters Partnership in Leeds are offering a one day course to help staff and volunteers, who work in Leeds with people approaching end of life, improve their confidence and communication skills around death, dying and bereavement. The course, devised by Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice, and delivered in partnership with Leeds Bereavement Forum, will give participants an opportunity to practise holding sensitive conversations in a safe, secure space.

Date, Time and Venue

  • Date: Wednesday 19 September
  • Time: 10am – 3.30pm (Registration from 9.30am)
  • Location: Oxford Place Centre, Oxford Place Leeds LS1 3AX

The course aims to increase awareness and understanding around bereavement and end of life choices, such as funeral arrangements, wills, finances, advance statement of wishes and other practical issues. It will also explore when, and how, to signpost people on to appropriate organisations.

This training will be free for staff and volunteers at Leeds City Council, Leeds City Council commissioned services and third sector organisations working with people in Leeds but there are a limited number of spaces available. Priority will be given to face to face practitioners working with people, in Leeds, approaching end of life.

More information

Please note: participants will be required to complete a short pre and post course questionnaire. Places may be restricted to one person per organisation, depending on demand. Lunch is not provided so please bring a packed lunch (or purchase food locally).
