Dying Matters Week

11-17 May 2020

At this time, people are having to face conversations around death more than ever before. That’s why this year’s Dying Matters Week, which aims to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life, is so important.

Death and dying can be a hard topic to talk about. We know that we will all have to face it one day, but we often put that “difficult” conversation off until tomorrow, or the day after...but it doesn't have to be that way.
