Dying Matters Awareness Week gives us an opportunity share the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement.

Dying Matters Awareness week is a campaign organised by Hospice UK which encourages people to talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life. The theme for 2020 is Dying To Be Heard, and focuses on how to help people coming to terms with death and how listening plays such a big part in this. Please find below plenty of information, activities and tips which will help give a better understanding on how we call all increase awareness and understanding on such an important topic.
