This year, Dying Matters Awareness Week, runs from 10 - 16 May 2021. The focus is are you in a good place to die?
Dying Matters want people of all ages to be in a good place when they die - physically, emotionally and with the right care in place.
huunuu is hosting and participating in a range of events to support the theme of Dying Matters Week and to enable conversations around death, dying and bereavement.
We want to highlight why it's important for families to think about, plan for and talk about their wishes, lives and death.
Join the conversation by signing up to one of our events.
