big conversationDying Matters has created some great resources to promote their Awareness Week 2016, which runs from 9-15 May. This year’s theme is The Big Conversation with leaflets and posters featuring the powerful strapline “Talking about dying won’t make it happen!”

The leaflet explains why talking about dying, death and bereavement is so crucial, and offers tips for initiating and continuing these conversations. It also advises on practical steps that can be taken to put our final wishes in place, as well as how to spread the message through our communities of the importance of discussing what we want at the end of our lives.  Visit their website for more information, which also offers a banner to download to promote the message on Twitter.
