We are working to build a world where death, dying and bereavement are recognised and valued as an integral part of life, and everyone has the opportunity to die and grieve well.

Our work

  • Stimulating public discourse
  • Building evidence and collecting stories
  • Understanding dying and grieving systems
  • Policy and advocacy
  • Improving death literacy
  • Understanding and reducing overtreatment
  • Sharing learning globally

This work is informed by the principles of the Realistic Utopia

The social and structural determinants of death, dying, and grieving are tackled

Dying is understood to be a relational and spiritual process rather than simply a physiological event

Networks of care lead support for people dying, caring, and grieving

Conversations and stories about everyday death, dying, and grief become common

Death is recognised as having value
