Public Awareness programmes

We aim to raise public awareness about issues related to death, dying and bereavement.
We do this through two key nationwide programmes.

  • Think Ahead, which guides people to discuss and record their care preferences in the event of an accident, serious illness or death. Recording their wishes can help relatives or carers know their preferences if they are unable to speak for themselves.
  •  Forum on End-of-Life in Ireland. The Forum is an initiative aimed at awareness raising, planning and promoting public debate on issues relating to death, dying and bereavement in Ireland. In 2009 they engaged with the public on end-of-life issues to find out what people in Ireland believe and want in relation to dying, death and bereavement.
