Dying Matters - Are we ready?

Every year, the charity Dying Matters aims to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life, whether that’s how they would like to be remembered or the practical matter of making a will.

This year, their campaign is asking, ‘Are we ready?’

For many, the answer may well be no, and knowing where to start this conversation with loved ones can be difficult and feel overwhelming, which is perfectly natural. While this is a sombre topic, having these conversation early in addition to considered planning, can ease the burden on family left behind and provide peace of mind to clients, knowing their wishes will be upheld and loved ones taken care of.

Dying Matters has a long history of working with supporting organisations including hospices, funeral service providers and financial advisers.

As an IFA, you are in a unique position to raise awareness of their mission by providing your clients with practical advice and later life planning. Using Dying Matters’ support tools you can prompt your clients, employees or your wider community, into discussing other areas of their later life needs with loved ones, and to take action in a sensitive way.

You can find all the Dying Matters’ resources here which include posters, postcards, leaflets and awareness packs.
