Amanda Blainey is a public speaker, writer and social activist in the growing death movement. She founded Doing Death a multimedia platform and podcast that allows us to explore the subject of death and dying.

In addition to working with patients in a UK Hospice she is involved in ‘The Hospice Biographers’ charity that records the life stories of terminally ill people. She also runs a regular Death Café - a pop up space for people to discuss any aspect of death and dying. Her hope is that by shifting old paradigms and opening up authentic conversations, she can help people to accept death as part of life and inspire them to live in a more enriching and meaningful way.
