About Gill Amos/ Emma Kennedy
Emma's interest in Death Cafés comes from a personal journey through grief and coming to terms with the idea of death.
Emma believes 'opening up spaces for people to come together and discuss ideas and issues around death, dying and living seem more important now. Death is a taboo subject and as such people are denied the opportunity to explore their feelings and ideas around death. Death cafés enable this to happen.'
Gill currently coordinates three social inclusion projects for older people with the charity Action East Devon. She trained as a social worker 30 years ago and has been working alongside people going through challenging life circumstances and transitions ever since. Gill’s interest in Death Cafe’s comes from her own experience of supporting friends and family at the end of life and her desire to help others think about what does it means to have a good death for themselves and others. She is currently studying for her Certificate in the Principals of End of Life Care.
