About this Death Cafe
Now more than ever we can benefit from talking openly about what is important to us and those we love. So we can hope for the best but plan for the worst.
BrumYODO team have run many in person Death Cafe's over the years, now with the pandemic impacting on us we want to continue to create spaces for people to explore the subject of death.
About Kath Day & Lis Whybrow
Kath is a Celebrant working across Birmingham and beyond to provide meaningful and beautiful ceremonies to all.
When families lose a loved one, the issue of death has rarely been discussed, leading to guess work when planning their farewells and ongoing fear for everyone else. She witnesses regularly in my role how people see death as a taboo, and regardless of who we are its our one great unifying factor. But we don’t discuss it, we avoid saying the word.
Lis is a solicitor who has practiced law for over 30 years and trained would-be solicitors in the area of law to do with death and dying. She specialises in wills powers of attorney deputyships and probate and her desire is to see people of Birmingham and the surrounding area face death and dying in a positive way that prepares them and their loved ones in the best way possible.
She is excited about people engaging in those important conversations and taking appropriate practical action to protect those they care about most.
Lis is a member of STEP, a professional body of lawyers caring for people across the generations, currently serving as chair for the Birmingham branch; she is a member of SFE, a professional body dealing with the elderly; and she is also a dementia friend.
