Useful Organisations

Death Cafe Logo

Death Café

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Their objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'.  A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. When searching for a café near you, remember to put “uk” after the town in the search box as it is an international site.

It offers a flexible and accessible bereavement service which aims to professionally care and respond to the needs of each service user. We aim to support every family with an individual approach.
