Dying Matters Awareness Week

This year’s theme, ‘The way we talk about Dying Matters’, focuses on the language that we use,and conversations we have, around death and dying.

Dying Matters Awareness Week

Dying Matters is a campaign run by the charity, Hospice UK who work with organisations, decision makers and the public to make things better for people who are dying or grieving. 

Every year, people around the UK use Dying Matters Awareness Week as a moment to encourage all communities to get talking in whatever way, shape or form works for them. 

Honest, timely conversations about death and dying are essential to good end of life care. Yet all too often barriers, including lack of confidence, taboos around discussing death, and confusion about who should be having these conversations mean patients, carers and families may not understand what is happening, or get all the information and support they need.
