We think dying matters…

Welcome to the Confortia website.

CONFORTIA is a developing group that aims to comfort, support and inform all who wish to talk about and to be better informed about death and dying and to do this through:

  • running Death Cafes and separate workshops
  • liaising with professionals and other interested parties
  • providing information to raise awareness of choices around death and dying
  • sharing our first-hand experiences of death and our range of skills
  • lobbying for improved services within Cornwall
