An opportunity to highlight your work

Many organisations will have resources or activities worth highlighting, for example a website, leaflet or support group relevant to death, dying, loss or care. DD Week is a good opportunity to sharethese on social media using the #DemystifyDeath hashtag - we can all work together to share each other's work more widely.

Ideas for tweets

You might want to tweet about an event you're involved in or a resource you think is particularly helpful. You could share a poem on the subject of death or dying, or a book with themes of loss or death. You could look for the #DemystifyDeath hashtag and retweet some of the work others are doing. You might want to share your own experiences or top tips.

Grief in the workplace

We have worked with the Scottish Bereavement Charter Group to launch a new suite of resources help managers, employers and colleagues create more bereavement-friendly workplaces: Bereavement Friendly Workplaces Resources

Please use your networks to help spread the word about the new resources. Here are some images that can be shared to raise awareness:
