Hi <<First Name>>,

There is just ONE MONTH to go until Dying Matters Awareness Week 2021. 
Running from 10 - 16 May 2021, this year's theme focuses on being in a good place when you die.

Lots of you have been busy planning your own events, and we're thrilled to share the new Dying Matters Resource pack with you - filled with messaging, graphics and images, social media headers and much more for you to use in the run up to and during the week. 
Download your resource pack now
We also have a version of the resource pack in Welsh

#DMAW21: What to expect
We don't talk about death enough, right? And that's why we have events like Dying Matters Awareness Week - a chance to open up the conversation around dying, death and bereavement, and encourage us all to think about the importance of being in a good place when we die. 

We are all able to think about the physical place where we might die. But it is equally as important to consider where we want to be emotionally, financially, spiritually, at the end of life.

At Dying Matters, we are not saying that a specific setting is better than another - rather we are helping people to understand the idea of preparation, planning and being in a good place at the end of life, and the positive impact that can have. 

During Dying Matters Awareness Week, we're asking people to:
Join Dying Matters

Spread the word and help us build a better understanding of people's experiences of dying. Encourage others to join us too - share with your friends and family. 
Tell stories

We'll be sharing some stories for Dying Matters Awareness Week, and we want to share yours too. Tell your #DMAW21 story on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram
Hold events

While we know that face-to-face events may not be happening for a while yet, we're here to support your virtual events. Are you planning something for DMAW21?  Add your event to the Dying Matters website.
