Dying Matters

Hospice UK is proud to be the parent charity of Dying Matters, a coalition of individual and organisational members across England and Wales, which aims to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life.

We have a wide range of information, resources and links you might find useful to support the campaign, which aims to widen the national conversation about death, dying and bereavement.
