The Lord-Lieutenant of Rutland's initiative on Dying and Bereavement

Dr Sarah Furness PhD (The Lord-Lieutenant of Rutland) has launched, and is Patron of, an initiative called "Dying Matters in Rutland" with a website, brochure and video. The following is an extract from a letter from Dr Furness to Parishes:

"I do encourage you to spend some time looking at what is available on the Dying Matters in Rutland website (link below). Dying Matters in Rutland provides an extremely useful source of practical help. Dying is a really taboo subject yet thinking about and planning for it has a relevance for people of all ages. None of us know when we will die. People of all ages need to plan from young parents to the elderly. Our message is that you can improve your end of life for yourself, and for those you love, by setting down your aims and wishes."
