Introduction We only get one chance to have our dying wishes met, which is why it’s so vital to talk, plan and make arrangements for the end of life—before it’s too late. That’s why the theme of the fifth annual Dying Matters Awareness Week is: ‘Dying Matters: You only die once’. The week takes place from 12-18 May 2014 and we have been busy planning activities alongside Hull City Council with the aim of raising awareness of dying well. We will be hosting information stalls in a range of locations across Hull, with information on things that you can do now to plan and arrange for a good death. We want to get as many people as possible thinking, talking and acting during Dying Matters Awareness Week - and to do this we need your help.

Live well and die well During the awareness week, we will be encouraging you to take five simple steps to make your end of life experience better, both for you and for your loved ones.

There are also a huge variety of ways you can get involved. From sending a tweet to running an event, by working together we can achieve maximum publicity and, as a result, get closer to making a good death the norm. Even just having a chat with family, friends or colleagues about the importance of preparing for death can change perceptions.
