As you know, our mission is to create an open culture that talks about death and where people feel able to listen and support those who are planning for end of life, who are dying and who have been bereaved.
Dying Matters Awareness Week, running from 10 - 16 May 2021, is a chance to make this happen - to bring people and partners together to break the stigma, challenge preconceptions and normalise public openness around death.
The theme will be announced in the next few weeks. What makes this year different is that as well as providing a focal point for the Awareness Week, this theme will extend beyond the week itself, broadening out activity and opportunities to get involved.
You can take part in Dying Matters Awareness Week in many ways - from having a conversation with colleagues or sharing stories online to holding your own events during the week.
Where can I find information about Dying Matters Awareness Week 2021?
All information will be sent directly to your inbox, as well as being shared on our website and on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
I'm not sure how I can get involved.
A Dying Matters event can be a simple or as complex as you wish. What matters is that you're creating a space for people to talk about death, dying or grief, and that you're doing so in a way that you feel comfortable you can deliver.
