Why is it that we don’t like to talk about the last part of our life or make plans for it as we do for almost every other aspect.
We support conversations about the last part of life and talking about the plans we can put in place, just like we do for every other aspect of our life.
Regardless of how much notice we get, we all know that as sure as we were born, our lives will inevitably one day come to an end. At Dignity Network, we understand that dying is as much a part of life as is being born or talking over a cuppa.
And it’s probably fair to say that no matter what stage of life we are at now, we all want choice and dignity at the end of our life. That’s where Dignity Network can help.
We are developing a suite of services for people planning for or nearing the end of their life, or the life of someone they love.
We provide services directly to individuals as well as to organisations who don’t have expertise in this area.
As we are a new organisation, we are in the process of developing our services and will update this website with more information as our services are made available. For now, here’s an overview of what we are working on which we hope will spark your interest to come back and visit our website again very soon.About Us
