As a Dementia Friends Champion, Ruth will guide those on the call how we can support people to live well with dementia, and to broaden our understanding of what it means to live with dementia.

David Billington from Full Circle Funerals said: "We host regular educational events that are open to everyone that would like to attend, where we and guests share information that can be helpful to those that are needing to or are thinking about planning a funeral, or indeed those that want to learn about becoming a funeral director or already work in a funeral care related profession. 

"We used to host these events face-to-face but the online webinars have made the sessions even more accessible, 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. 

"Participants are encouraged to ask questions, engage with the material and speak openly and honestly about funerals, death and dying.  However, if you prefer you can just listen and absorb without speaking or even turning your camera or microphone on at all.

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. 

"Please get in touch if you would like to find out how to attend, have a question or would like to be guest speaker in our 2021 webinar series."
