Hi <<First Name>>,

This month, we’re shining a light on how Dying Matters and other leading charities are supporting frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Plus, stories from death-positive libraries, the latest from eHospice and a date for your 2021 diary. 
Our Frontline
We're proud to be part of Our Frontline - a coalition of leading charities who have united for the first time to provide round-the-clock mental health support for those working on the frontline against COVID-19. 

We've joined Mind, Samaritans, Shout and The Royal Foundation to provide support and resources for NHS workers, carers, the Blue Light emergency services and key workers who are putting their mental health under pressure during the crisis. As Dying Matters, we are able to provide support on issues around death, dying and bereavement.

COVID-19: What happens now?
Public libraries are trusted services in working with communities. That's why teams at Kirklees, Newcastle and Redbridge libraries, in conjunction with University of Northumbria researchers, have set up a project using creative activities, author events and debate to create a safe environment for discussion.
