Free online training sessions

We're holding a series of special, free online training sessions aimed at improving palliative and end of life care for people across Greater Manchester.

We’re hosting 50 webinars throughout our 50th anniversary year, focusing on a different theme each month. 

Themes covered include some of the less known areas of death, dying and bereavement, as well as care for people with dementia, and ways to support individuals with learning disabilities.   

To view the free webinars, visit or for more information please contact Abby Evans on 0161 498 3616 or email 

If there are any other topics you think would be helpful, we’d encourage you to get in touch too.

There are so many professionals in Greater Manchester and beyond who work with people with life-limiting illnesses – whether in hospitals or other clinical settings, care homes, homeless hostels and a whole range of other areas too.  At St Ann’s we’re very experienced in providing training to others, whether to help them understand when people may need access to specialist palliative care, to help aid communication, or simply to improve systems and processes. We’re really excited about these sessions, and are thrilled so many people, whether they work in a clinical setting or not, are accessing them already. We’re really passionate about sharing learnings and encouraging others to ask questions and find out more.  People are often scared of the word hospice, but lots of the areas we train are relevant to other fields too, for example advanced communication skills.  We’re always pleased to help should people be interested in learning more about palliative and end of life care, and we’d love as many people as possible to engage with the free webinars.
