Why Host an Event?

Hosting a local event, such as a Death Café, is a way to help connect and bring your community together and provide practical support for improving end of life outcomes for all.

Every family is impacted by end of life, whether it is for a loved one, or for yourself. So why not build support locally around you and those you love, by leading a local get together?

You can get a group together within your local suburb, school, workplace, or even community.

Event Toolkit

This year’s campaign is all about personalising final arrangements and building community. The campaign creative reflects individual choice and expression and reinforces the fact that ‘no one size fits all’.

If you are interested in hosting an event, we encourage you to use this year’s campaign resources.  They include a range of posters (feel free to use any or all of them).  There is even an editable poster that you can use to advertise your own event.

Events are registered from all over the Country and our new events database allows people to search for events near them.

If this is your first event, please download the Event Toolkit to get ideas and don’t forget to register your event in our events database.
