BrumYODO is a local collective set up with the aim of helping the people of Birmingham have more open and honest conversations about Death and Dying
Lack of openness and willingness to talk about death and dying has affected the quality and range of support and care services available to people who are coming to the end of their lives, including the ability to die where or how we would wish.
We’re part of a national and international social movement which believes there is such a thing as a Good Death.
Our focus is to empower our community to demand better. The people of Birmingham certainly deserve this.
YODO means “You Only Die Once”
BrumYODO now has its very own website with lots of information on this year’s activity. You can find it at www.brumyodo.org.uk
Dying Matters is a coalition of 32,000 members across England and Wales which aims to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life.
You can see more about what they do on their website
