Dying Matters is a national charity which aims to encourage people to be more open about dying, bereavement and making end of life plans.
The charity host their annual Dying Awareness week this week. We hope that the awareness created will urge people to plan for the future and in particular prepare Lasting Powers of Attorney and Wills.
Awareness Week Every year in May, Dying Matters and our coalition members host an Awareness Week, which gives us an unparalleled opportunity to place the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement firmly on the national agenda. Our 2016 Awareness Week will run from 9-15 May and will have the theme 'The Big Conversation'. Find out how you can support it.
