good life, good death, good grief

Good Death Week

11 – 17 May 2020

Good Death Week takes place every year in May. It gives individuals and organisations the opportunity to promote the positives of living in a society where people can be open about dying, death and bereavement.

Would you like to be involved with this year's Good Death Week? We have just set up a small grants scheme to help people run their own Good Death Week event in their workplace, community centre or organisation. Read the full details and apply here.

You can also take a look at what has taken place in previous years to see if that provides you with any inspiration:

We also have a variety of resources that can be used for Good Death Week or at anytime, if you'd like to do something practical at your workplace, community group or among friends and family. These include films, leaflets, conversation menus, an ACP origami game, online resources and even an art exhibition. You can view these resources here.
