Leeds Bereavement Forum Dying Matters Week Death Cafe

We will be running our tenth virtual Death Cafe in May as part of Dying Matters Week running from 10-16 May. This year, the week will focus on the importance of being in a good place to die. 

Where people die is changing. More people than ever are dying at home, and the pandemic has accelerated this trend. In 2020, 28% of people in the UK died at home. With gaps in support structures for people when they die, and for those that are left behind, people are dying without being in the right place. Often, people don’t feel prepared and they haven’t fulfilled their wishes or communicated them to loved ones.

Date and time

Tuesday 11 May | Virtual Death Cafe via Zoom | 2pm-3pm

Please email us for the Zoom link and password.

Just a reminder for those who don’t know:

What is a Death Café?

At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Death Cafés are an international movement dedicated to encouraging discussion about death and dying in a relaxed environment – a welcome opportunity to ask those awkward questions you always wanted to ask.
