Devised by Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice, and delivered by Leeds Bereavement Forum, this course will give participants an opportunity to practise holding sensitive conversations in a safe, secure space. The session also aims to increase awareness and understanding around end of life planning, and bereavement, as well as to explore when, and how, to signpost on to appropriate organisations.
The course will cost £25 for staff and volunteers at Leeds City Council, council commissioned services/agencies and third sector organisations but there are a limited number of spaces available. This session has been subsidised by the Dying Matters Partnership in Leeds and priority will be given to face to face practitioners working with people approaching end of life in Leeds.
