St Joseph’s Hospice


Be part of the biggest conversation in East London about death and dying

It’s Time for Tea and Big Conversations during Dying Matters Awareness Week and this year we have set ourselves the challenge of hosting the biggest Death Café in East London. A Death Café is a tea party style gathering which encourages facilitated discussion, openness and awareness around death and dying in a supportive environment.

Jon Underwood, founder of the Death Café movement will head up the Time for Tea Death Café on 11th May at St Joseph’s Hospice with support from a team of experts preceded by a short panel talk to get everyone in the mood for talking. Joining Jon Underwood on the panel is FT journalist Claer Barrett who has her own story of family reconnection following her attendance at our Death Café last year, St Joseph’s Hospice Nurse Consultant Nigel Dodds and Philip Adams from Age UK East London.

If you can’t make it to St Joseph’s then why not have the big conversation with your local community and hold a ‘Time for Tea’ event in your own home with neighbours, family and friends. Just remember to get the cakes in! We have all the materials you will need to help you start the conversation.
