With this action-focused theme, Dying Matters aims to encourage people to take five actions to be ready for the end of life:
- make a Will
- record your funeral wishes
- plan your future care and support
- register as an organ donor
- tell your loved ones your wishes.
To prepare for the week, Dying Matters is holding a launch event in London on 28 January 2013 for its members. The event will see the launch of new awareness week resources and talks from a range of speakers to inspire attendees on how to get involved.
