Death And Dying

Although it's a difficult topic to think about, planning for a death will help to ensure that someone's wishes are carried out, and that the burden of making decisions about what happens afterwards is taken away.

It's also helpful to know what the practicalities of registering a death are.

The Thalidomide Trust is here to support beneficiaries through difficult times, such as the loss of a loved one. We'll guide you to the right help and support for you.
