Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.

- Haruki Murakami


But it often is. Wishful thinking and 'hoping for the best' are not enough when it comes to dying.

We know this, we understand dying.

The aim of our charity is to provide all the necessary resources to prepare for dying, and then, to get on with living. As a community we believe that we can do both living and dying better, by doing it together.

This starts with a conversation and different thinking.

I invite you to join our conversation.
