Leeds Bereavement Forum run a series of free monthly lunchtime Special Interest Group talks covering different issues surrounding death, dying and loss. Speakers cover a variety of subjects such as what makes a good funeral, advance decisions, end of life care and bereavement in Leeds hospitals and lots more. Open to all we hope our free talks will be the perfect networking opportunity and a different place to eat your lunchtime sandwiches!
The talks below take place at Oxford Place Centre.
