Dying Matters Awareness week

Dying Matters Awareness Week 2-6 May 2022, is our chance to get our community talking about dying and grief. We want everyone to be #InAGoodPlace when they die. This means that they are having the right care and support. It means they are in the right physical, emotional, financial and spiritual place.

Right now, we know that people are dying without the support they need. An estimate suggests that since the start of the pandemic almost 70,000 people have died at home without access to specialist care. The past two years have accelerated this issue like never before.

We know that it's by talking, and by sharing stories, that we can change the conversation about death. When we talk about dying and grief, we remove the taboo and stigma that can surround these topics. It can also help inform political and healthcare leaders about what's happening in our communities. They will then know what they need to do to make end of life care accessible to everyone in the UK.

Dying Matters Awareness Week is our chance to join the Dying Matters movement - to get talking about death and dying, and to call for end of life care for all. Let's talk about dying and grief, and our plans for the end of life, so that everyone can die #InAGoodPlace, no matter who they are.
