Thinking about the end of life can be difficult for many people. One thing is certain, is that at some point the end of life will happen to us all. We don’t always know how or when, but planning and preparation can help people focus on what matters most to them.
At Citizens Advice Reading, we know from our experience, how timely advice and information can really help people to take control of their lives.
Our new project “Peace of Mind Matters” can provide practical information and advice on planning for the end of life. We like to think of this as “life planning”
Who is our project for?
