NCPC promotes the extension and improvement of palliative care services for ALL people with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions in all settings.</p><p>Dying Matters is a coalition to raise public awareness and lessen the taboo around dying. The Coalitions Mission is to support changing knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards death, dying and bereavement, and through this to make living and dying well the norm. This will involve a fundamental change in society in which dying, death and bereavement will be seen and accepted as the natural part of everybodys life cycle.</p><p>Registered Charity no. 1005671A company limited by guarantee no. 264443</p><p>Thank you.</p></li></ul>
