DYING MATTERS AT UCLAN – ARE WE READY?


 

 

 

 

 

Dying Matters at UCLan – Are we ready?’ is a week of events aimed at staff and students to talk, listen and reflect on how we plan for our futures.

Dying Matters Week, 13th-19th May 2019

Dying Matters is a national coalition which aims to open up the conversation around death and dying.  During annual ‘Dying Matters Week’ people are asked to join the conversation in their own local areas. At UCLan we will be holding a variety of free events provided by staff, students and friends of the University.  ‘Are we ready?’ is a challenging question on many levels. We hope to help you consider how you might answer this through our practical, thought-provoking, inspirational events….
