Dying Matters Awareness Week

Dear All

This is Dying Matters Awareness Week and the Centre for Palliative Care is hosting several events at the University.

19th-22nd May

In Main Reception we are encouraging people to come and share their thoughts on death and dying with others. We would like to invite you to come and write down your thoughts on death, dying and bereavement and display them on a special tree.

21st May
Room EEG169

On Thursday 21st May, we are also holding a morning drop-in session for people to come in and talk about their views on death and dying. No appointment is needed – just drop in and meet other people, including professionals trained to answer some of your questions.

Please see the attached flyer for further information and please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries. Dying Matters Awareness Week
