Wednesday 28th November – Delegates hail conference a huge success.

The Finders International London PHA Funerals Conference took place at the Park Plaza, Waterloo. Delegates from across England and Wales gathered to discuss the issues that affect every council who undertakes Public Health Act Funerals.

Those attending heard from speakers on a wide range of subjects such as dealing with bereavement, funeral poverty, the changing face of funerals and what happens at a coroners inquest.

The event, the second of the year and first to be held in London, will be run annually by Finders International as part of the ongoing support provided to hard-pressed local authorities. One local authority officer attending said that the event means that he will be “meeting other people and, obviously, making touch with all the agencies..and all the speakers here today“.

David Lockwood, the Public Sector Development Manager from Finders International said “the event gives us a chance to give something back to local authorities, to support them and help them support each other in these difficult times for the public sector” he continued “this shows our commitment to the public sector, to provide high quality training and resources and to provide continued assistance“.
