good life, good death, good grief

Hold an event

Demystifying Death Week

10-16 May 2021

Since the first death awareness week back in 2013, each May, people across Scotland organise local events giving people the chance to talk about death, dying and bereavement.

Organising face-to-face events has become impossible for a while, but the need for opportunities to discuss death, dying and bereavement is more relevant than ever.

This year, Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief is offering people support to bring their events online...

Support to bring your event online

Video-conferencing facilities

We can provide you with free use of a Zoom Pro account to hold an event during Demystifying Death Week, including:

- Video conferencing

- Password protected entry

- Breakout rooms - so you can split your event into smaller discussion groups

Resource pack

We are developing a free digital resource pack providing:

- guidance on holding an online event

- ideas for event topics and structure
- short films on dying, planning ahead, bereavement and death in times of covid-19
- resources to support discussions

We aim to make the resources available from 22nd March.

Accessing resources

From 22nd March these resources will be available free of charge to all members of Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief in Scotland. (Becoming a member is free - join here.)

If you would like to receive a copy of the digital resource pack when it becomes available, or discuss putting on an event using the Zoom Pro account, please email:
