Following the success of the 2016 event, the Leeds Dying Matters Partnership will be holding a launch event for Dying Matters week 2017 at the Leeds City Museum in Millennium Square.

The date

The event will take place on Tuesday 9th May 2017, from 11am to 3pm and will include a range of stalls, workshops, and activities themed around planning for end of life.

Who will be there?

A range of council, NHS, voluntary and private sector services will be represented at the event, with staff available to offer information and advice on matters concerning end of life issues. Refreshments will be available.

The aims of the Dying Matters Partnership are:

  • To enable people in Leeds to feel more comfortable talking about death and dying, discuss their end of life wishes with friends, family and/or professionals, write a will, register as an organ donor and communicate their end of life wishes.
  • To enable health and social care professionals and volunteers to feel able to engage their clients in planning for the last years of life.

Please make a note in your diary, and watch out for more details about this important event.
