Dying Matters have awarded membership to Respect to a group of companies whose aim is to help promote a National Campaign called Dying Matters. Their aim is to plan to host regional fairs on a yearly basis in order to help people find information about end-of-life issues such as making a wishes list so that the ones left behind know what your last wishes are with regard to arranging your funeral and what type of coffin you would like, whether you wish to be buried or cremated? Do you want to go to Church or have a graveside service or a eulogy read out at the crematorium? Information will be provided on making a Will, and Disability Services and benefits available and also end of life care information provided by the local Hospice and MacMillan.
Cliff Richard Organisation Funded; A Party for Kath is a 5-minute film produced by the Dying Matters Coalition, demonstrating the benefits of greater openness around death and dying and how discussing your wishes and Pre-Planning exactly what kind of celebration and green burial you want. Centring on the story of a son, a mother, and an extraordinary party, the film is a unique and poignant representation of the Awareness Weeks message.
