New directory of support for people approaching the end of life

Categories: Community Engagement.

The project – Dying Matters Help – is led by the Dying Matters Coalition and aims to support people in the last 12 months of life, as well as their family, carers and friends.

Any organisations providing practical or emotional support for people approaching end of life and/or their carers can add their details for free, using a straightforward online form.

As well as providing links to local and national services, the website offers information on relevant subjects, such as palliative care, advance care planning and the financial issues associated with illness and disability. The website also provides access to the Dying Matters online community, which includes forums, blogs and personal stories.

If you have any questions about the project, you should contact Jon Underwood at The National Council for Palliative Care.
