Everyone who has an interest in, or curiosity about, our work is welcome to join our Network. Our Network currently includes carers, funeral celebrants, nurses, mortuary managers, death doulas, mums, hospice volunteers, interested people, midwives, bereavement officers, artists, counsellors, clergy…

To join the network and receive occasional newsletters and details of events please subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of the page. Check our facebook page too.

We are currently looking for ways to network, especially with celebrants and end of life companions, and to let local people know who is available in their area.
