About this Death Cafe

To mark the start of Death Awareness Week 2016, Age Scotland and the University of Glasgow End of Life Studies group are holding a death cafe to encourage people to highlight the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement.
The evening will be very informal, with a focus on respect, and on the confidentiality of participants.
Professor Clark is working on Global Interventions at the End of Life, a University of Glasgow led research project which is funded by the Wellcome Trust. The project looks at ways in which communities around the world respond to death and caring for the dying.
The organisers will be on hand to join in the conversation, not to lead the discussions nor to educate people.

About Glasgow End of Life Studies Group in collaboration with Age Scotland

Iain Howie, Regional Ambassador for Age Scotland and Professor David Clark, founder of the Glasgow End of Life Studies Group, University of Glasgow, Dumfries, will be on hand to help the conversation flow.
