Death & Grief Cafes

Death & Grief Cafes are a safe space where people, usually strangers come together to talk about death, dying, grief and life! There is no agenda or objectives; the conversation is simply led by the people in the group. It is a place to talk and share (or just listen) rather than a grief support group or a counselling session. Cake and something to drink are highly recommended! You can discover more about Death Cafes here.

Come and join us at one of our cafes.
