For many people, the thought of talking about death is awkward, scary and depressing. It’s a tricky conversation that’s often just easier to avoid. We hear you, but we also believe that the alternative – leaving your affairs in a mess and your loved ones unaware of your wishes – is much worse. That’s why we are proud to support Dying Matters who are working to break one of society’s biggest taboos.
