Event description

Description

Do you work with people in Leeds approaching end of life and find it difficult to hold conversations around death, dying and loss?

The Dying Matters Partnership in Leeds are offering a one day course to help staff and volunteers, who work with people in Leeds approaching end of life, to improve their confidence and communication skills around death, dying and loss. The course, devised by Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice, and delivered in partnership with Leeds Bereavement Forum, will give participants an opportunity to practise holding sensitive conversations in a safe, secure space.

The course aims to increase awareness and understanding around bereavement and end of life planning, such as funeral arrangements, wills, finances, advance statement of wishes and other practical issues. It will also explore when, and how, to signpost on to appropriate organisations.

The course will be free for staff and volunteers at Leeds City Council, Leeds council commissioned services and third sector organisations in Leeds but there are a very limited number of spaces available. Priority will be given to face to face practitioners working with people approaching end of life in Leeds.

Please note: participants will be required to complete a short pre and post course questionnaire. Lunch is not provided so you will need to bring a packed lunch or purchase from local shops.

To register your interest in attending the course, please e-mail info@lbforum.org.uk or reserve a place on eventbrite and we will be in touch.
