We Need to Talk about Dying

Date: 13th May 2021

Time: 1:00pm - 4:30pm

"We need to talk about dying" is an on-line conversation about all things death and dying, as part of dying matters week.

About this Event

Attitudes to death and dying in the Black Country and West Birmingham will be the focus of a virtual event on 13 May as public services workers, the community and voluntary sector, and the general public gather to share ideas about how we can be more open about the end of life and how that can help us all prepare.

Many people are reluctant to hold conversations with their loved ones about their preferences about end of life care, funeral and financial planning. The event will discuss how families, employers and communities as a whole can remove the stigma from talking about death and dying and make a difference for the people we care about.Schedule: (you can dip in and out)
