Since the Dying Matters Coalition was set up in 2009, we’ve created a wide range of resources to help people start conversations about dying, death and bereavement. These have been a great success and used by a host of different organisations including hospices, hospitals, care homes, community centres, financial advisers and funeral directors have all used them to successfully raise awareness in their area.


Which of the following describes how you would feel talking to someone close to you about their end of life wishes.

Our resources

Dying Matters has numerous resources for members who want to help raise awareness and promote conversation about death, dying and bereavement.

Our leaflets are designed to help everyone, whatever their situation, begin conversations about end of life issues. They present useful information in a clear and easy to read manner on subjects including making plans, writing wills, bereavement, talking to children about death and avoiding misconceptions about dying. All the leaflets are freely available to download and print. We also have a set of five "empty-belly" posters for you to use if you are holding a Dying Matters event.
