Dying Matters - Raising awareness of dying, death and bereavement

Dying Matters is a coalition of individual and organisational members across England and Wales, which aims to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life.

What we do

We have around 12,000 members, and are actively enlisting those that are committed to supporting changing knowledge, attitudes and behaviours around death and dying. Joining is free, and our members include community groups, healthcare bodies, private individuals and groups representing a range of faiths.

We have created a wide range of resources to help people start conversations about dying, death and bereavement.

Our website has been created primarily for people approaching the end of their life, and their carers, relatives and friends. It will also be of interest to anyone thinking about what they want for their own end of life. The content has been funded by Macmillan Cancer Support.
