EASE (End of Life Aid Skills for Everyone) aims to enable people to be more comfortable and confident supporting family and community members with issues they face during dying, death and bereavement.

The informal support that people receive from friends and family has an important influence on their experiences of caring, dying and grieving and this course is for anyone who wants to be able to support someone with issues they face relating to death, dying and bereavement either now or in future.


This course will be online reading or watching short films approximately 1 hour a week with additional Zoom discussion group for 1.5 hours.
