Next year's Dying Matters Awareness Week

4 August 2010
Save the date: Next Dying Matters Awareness Raising Week scheduled for the week commencing 16th May 2011.

We are planning the next Dying Matters Awareness Raising Week for the week commencing 16th May 2011.

Please put this date in your diaries and start planning activities and events in your local community to generate awareness of issues around death, dying and bereavement in your area.

We have a number of materials to support your events, which can be found at

Remember that All Hallows Eve and the Mexican Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) Celebrations all happen around 1st November, closely followed by Remembrance Day on 11th November – all of these are fantastic opportunities to raise awareness around these issues.

What will you be doing? Please let us know so we can share your examples to inspire others!
