Every donation brings us closer to our vision of ensuring that no one dies alone.
Death and dying are part of all of our lives. This short film encourages us all to "Think Ahead" and plan for the future - this is often easier to do when there isn't the pressure, stress and uncertainty of illness. If we talk together before there are problems it makes a difference to how we and our loved ones cope.

This short film explores the important role that friends and neighbours have in supporting someone who is seriously ill and their family.
"Grief can't be shared. Everyone carries it alone, his own burden, his own way."

Bobby's Story: Talking to Children
We cannot protect our children from the realities of illness, dying, death and loss. Even very young children can sense when something is happening in their family without anyone saying anything to them. It is important to be honest with children about death and dying, using their language and answering their questions. Don't leave them to cope alone
