Event description

Description

The Settle Death Cafe started in the Autumn of 2015 and came about as a direct result of one of our Settle Soup events. It will continue to meet on the first Saturday of alternate months at the Hub in Commercial Courtyard between 10am and 12noon.

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death.
Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Our Death Cafes are always offered:
- On a not for profit basis
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action

We completely understand that some people may be interested but may not feel ready to attend a Death Cafe... that is fine. At the hub we have a wide range of books and leaflets available to borrow or keep about end of life planning, alternative funerals, how to raise the subject with friends and relatives and much more as well as many books that Eliza gave us when she moved abroad.

Any questions please feel free to email Jo on hub@settlecommunityandbusinesshub.org.uk or pop in to the hub for a chat in Commercial Courtyard during one of the drop ins on Tuesdays 10-4 or Fridays 12-5. We are located in the pedestrian alleyway running between Duke Street in Settle, adjacent to Wholesome Bee wholefoods shop and Ashfield car park.
