About this Death Cafe

You are welcome to join us for this daytime Death Cafe at the The David Rayner Centre, for tea, cake and conversation about death in an open, respectful and confidential space. We meet simply as people who are going to die.
The aim of the Death Cafe movement is to increase awareness of death in order to help people make the most of their finite lives. Everyone is welcome. 
Death Cafes are not for profit and have no agenda, objectives, advertising or themes - the conversations that happen are entirely dependent on the people who turn up.
They are not grief support or counselling sessions.
Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to find out more to help you decide whether you'd like to come along.

If you would like to join us please book your place using the link given. Donations towards room hire cost are welcome.

The David Rayner Centre is on the Scotsdales Garden Centre site in the single-storey building beyond the lawn to the left of the main drive. It is fully wheelchair accessible, on the Citi 7 bus route and there is splenty of parking.

You can keep track of future Death Cafes in Cambridge by signing up to our email list and by visiting FB/DeathCafeCambridge.

About Jo

Jo is a nurse with over 20 years caring for the dying and their families. She has a passion for normalising dying as part of living and hopes to demystify the fundamental aspects of over medicalisation and end of life planning and provision within health care.

Jo enjoys the variety and depth of conversation at the cafes with people who are brought together to humbly and often humorously discuss one of life’s great certainties. Jo feels she often leaves the cafes with more questions about life and death than she arrives with, but does not feel obliged to have answered.
