We work to support communities across the country in areas related to dying, death and bereavement. 

We do this through our Public Engagement work, which supports thinking and planning for end of life and bereavement, and our Arts and Cultural Engagement programme, which is giving people opportunities for creative expression in times of uncertainty and loss.
