The Community Shop for ‘End of Life’ Care and Support.

Wendy Coulton runs ‘Grey Skies’ a community shop to get information, guidance and support on issues relating to dying, death and bereavement. 

Based in Devonport, Grey Skies is the first social enterprise of its kind in the city. It is a one-stop-shop for all end of life matters. People can pop in for a chat with Wendy, ask questions and let her know what’s on their mind about any and all matters relating to death.

In our conversation we talk about:

  • Why Wendy set-up Grey Skies and why she cares so deeply about end of life issues.
  • How taking positive steps around end of life matters is an act of empowerment and love.
  • Why shifting our relationship with death and breaking down some of the taboos matters so much.
  • What we can all do now to prepare for our own deaths.
