Box of Me

Date: Thursday 16th February
Location: Yellows, Whitworth Locke


Box of Me invites you to think more about the plans you could put in place for your future and beyond 

‘Box of Me’ is a fun and informative group workshop for LGBTQ+ adults which invites you to think more about the plans you could put in place for the future, to ensure you can be your authentic and true self right to the end of your life (and beyond!) This session is produced and delivered as part of a collaboration between Pride in Ageing and St Ann’s Hospice.

At the beginning of the workshop you will be provided with a box, which will contain all of the planning and information you gather during the session. Over 90 minutes you will have the choice to call at different ‘action’ stalls to find out more about the plans you could be putting in place and add information about the things that are important to you to your box.

These include:

• My life story, identity and who is important to me

• My advance care plan and decision-making

• My will

• Donating my organs

• What my funeral would look like

At the end of the session you are welcome to take your box home - there will even be a box decoration station - to keep in a safe place for the future (make sure to tell a trusted friend or family member where it is), or if you prefer we can create digital copies of the planning you have put in place to send via email for you to store electronically.
