What is a Death Cafe?

Our principles are that Death Cafes are always offered:

• With no intention of leading participants to any conclusion, product or course of action.

• As an open, respectful and confidential space where people can express their views safely.

• On a not for profit basis.

• Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

It’s also worth stating here what Death Cafes is not:

• Death Cafe is not a bereavement support or grief counselling setting. Death Cafe doesn’t work for people who, for whatever reason, aren’t able to discuss death comfortably and openly. There are many projects better set up for this.

• Death Cafes aren’t an opportunity to give people information about death and dying – regardless of how good or important it is. Rather we create time to discuss death without expectations. For this reason having guest speakers and information materials available is actively discouraged

• Death Cafe doesn’t work as a method of community engagement, research or consultation. It shouldn’t be used for these purposes.

We have established this structure to keep Death Cafe positive. This is also to prevent the use of this concept by those with an interest in leading people to conclusions, products or a specific course of action.

Let’s get the conversation going….

This event is part of the ‘CBC Wellness Campaign’ – a series of webinars and events supporting the 22,000+ people who work on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, many of whom are at the forefront of the changing face of healthcare. However, these events are also for anyone: you don’t have to work here and there is no charge to attend.
