Demystifying Death in Glasgow

Our next in-person event is coming up on Saturday 18th May. We are returning to Glasgow with a full day in the beautiful Hidden Gardens. We hope we can continue to build on all the brilliant energy and connections we made in Glasgow last November.

There will be space to tell our own stories, demystify caring for the dead and learn about our legal rights and options in Scotland. After lunch we will have a discussion around what caring for our dead within our communities could look like in Glasgow. All free to attend. More information and how to register here
