Dying Matters Awareness Week 2017: 8 - 14 May 2017

Every year in May, Dying Matters and it's coalition members host an Awareness Week, which gives them an unparalleled opportunity to place the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement firmly on the national agenda. 

The year the 2017 Awareness Week will run from 8-14 May and will ask What Can You Do? This aims to get people more active in planning for dying and death and helping support those who may need it in times of grief and bereavement, be they friends, family or in your wider community.
