Let’s Talk about Dying, Death and Grief

A drop-in evening at the Windrush Room in the George Moore Centre on 3rd May 2023 – 7.00 till 9.00pm

We aim to get people talking openly about dying, death and grief – to reduce anxiety and isolation.

Talking about death and dying can be tough. It can be an uncomfortable conversation that many of
us may want to avoid. It can be a time of great confusion and pain whether expected or unexpected
and a time where you will need to make decisions and face difficult choices. The saying goes that it
can take a village to raise a child but it can also take a village to look after someone who is dying and
to support their family. We aim to bring together a range of information and organisations that
provide physical, practical and emotional support and care – to open our arms to our community, friends and family.
