Dying Matters Awareness Week 2013 resources launched

31 January 2013
Dying Matters Awareness Week runs from 13 - 19 May. We have a range of resources to help you promote your Awareness Week activities.

Our Awareness Week leaflet is bright and eye-catching but also very practical. It sets out the five things that everyone should do to prepare for the end of life in the form of a simple checklist, and provides contact details for helpful organisations. It's ideal for distribution at events as well as to your friends and colleagues.

We also have a new poster designed to help members advertise Dying Matters awareness-raising events in their local areas.
