Dying Matters Leeds Partnership is looking for proposals for Leeds based projects to help achieve their ambitions for Dying Matters which will reach the target audience of men and people from diverse communities. Funding of up to £5,000 is available.
What is Dying Matters?
Dying Matters Leeds aims to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life. The partnership is made up of key organisations across the city, including Leeds City Council, the NHS, third sector organisations and businesses involved in death, dying and bereavement.
Death and dying continues to be seen as a taboo and is often not talked about within families, communities and with professionals. The vast majority of the public believe that people in Britain are uncomfortable discussing death and dying. Being open to the fact that dying is inevitable enables planning for End of Life Care easier.
What support is needed?
The 2018 Health Needs Data on review on End of Life Care Services identified inequalities in relation to end of life for men and people from diverse communities. To help address this issue the Dying Matters Partnership is inviting proposals for projects which will work with these target groups within Leeds to achieve our aims set out above.
If you are a voluntary or a statutory sector organisation in Leeds interested in putting forward a proposal, please download and complete the DyingMattersProposalForm and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 March 2021.
