Dying Matters Week 2018

This week, the 14th to 20th May, is Dying Matters Week

Q: What is it about?

A: In 2009, the National Council for Palliative Care (NCPC) set up the Dying Matters Coalition to promote public awareness of dying, death and bereavement.

Q: What are their aims?

A: The Mission is to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life. They are working to address this by encouraging people to talk about their wishes towards the end of their lives, including where they want to die and their funeral plans with friends, family and loved ones.
