Our Spiritual Support Team discuss their role and why it's important to talk about death and dying.

Author: Malcolm Brown & Liz Ellison, Spiritual Support

Date: May 2021

This vlog has been created to raise awareness of Dying Matters Week 2021, running from 10 to 16 May. Dying Matters is a chance for organisations and individuals to come together and open up conversations around death, dying and bereavement.

Are you in a good place to die?

This year’s theme is being ‘in a good place to die’. This can mean physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually. There is no right or wrong place to die, it is different for everyone. The pandemic has brought conversations and thoughts about death and dying to the forefront of our lives and yet we still struggle to find easy ways to share about these taboo topics. Dying matters to all of us – let’s talk about it. www.dyingmatters.org
With thanks to our Spiritual Support volunteers, Malcolm Brown and Liz Ellison.
