good life, good death, good grief

Demystifying Death Week

bringing dying into the limelight

2-6 May 2022

demystifying death week is about shining a light on death, dying and bereavement in scotland.


People usually want to do the right thing when someone they know is caring, dying or grieving. But often they can feel awkward offering help, or worry about making things worse.

People often have questions about serious illness or death. But often they don't know who to ask.

Making plans when you’re healthy means there is less to think about when you’re ill. But often people put off making plans until it is too late.

demystifying death week is about giving people knowledge, skills and opportunities to plan and support each other through death, dying, loss and care.
