Dying Matters

The British are particularly reticent when it comes to discussing death. The Dying Matters Coalition – of which Dimbleby Cancer Care is a member – has been working with its diverse membership to get some national conversations going. Most recently it has held the 2011 Dying Matters Awareness Week which has been widely covered in the national media, with every indication that people are beginning to recognise the point of the DM Coalition’s mission.
