We believe that with the right information and support people can create funerals that are helpful and have a positive effect on long-term well-being. The more we know about what is possible, the more likely we are to be able to make choices that are right for us. With this in mind, we host educational workshops and events to provide information and encourage people to ask questions and speak openly about funerals. We host these events face-to-face and using online webinars to try to make the sessions as accessible as possible, to as many people as possible.
Our webinars are held at 11am on the second Friday of the month and last for approximately one hour. They are hosted via Zoom and you can find the links to them below.

Friday 10th July 2020 11am
Andrew Atkins (Independent Funeral Director)
More and more people are considering the environmental impact of the decisions that they make. This webinar considers the different aspects of funerals and considers the environmental impact of the different options (in as much as they are currently understood). For some people, creating a “green funeral” is at the forefront of their mind and for others it is one of many priorities during the arrangement process. Either way, this webinar should be very helpful and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions too.
