We’re proud to be working in partnership with a number of organisations throughout the boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey to support Dying matters Week ( 9 May – 15 May 2016).

Dying affects us all. Dying Matters Week can help to change the way we talk about dying, death and bereavement and prepare, plan, care and support those who are dying and the people who are close to them. Death and dying isn’t easy to talk about, but hopefully Dying Matters Awareness week will give people the confidence to break down the taboo’s about dying and start to aim to have a ‘good death’ and understand what that means.

We will be attending a series of events across all three boroughs to engage with residents to raise awareness of Dying Matters. Residents will be able to share their thoughts, feelings and fears and to pick up information about current services available.

You will be able to find us in the following locations:
