Dying Matters: Benefits and Wills advice

As part of Dying Matters Week 2021, Primrose Hospice’s benefits advisor has filmed a video offering Benefits and Wills advice.

This year’s theme is ‘In A Good Place’ and Clare Stallard, family support and benefits advisor, offers some practical benefits and Wills advice on help available if you or a loved one is given a life-limiting diagnosis.

From Wills to PIP and Carers Allowance, Clare tells you what you need to know.

Primrose has teamed up with KEMP Hospice and Worcestershire Association of Carers for this year’s campaign and created a joint range of resources to help people speak about dying, death and bereavement.

The three organisations will be holding a Live Q&A online which people can join for free on Friday, May 14 from 11am to 12pm.

You will be able to chat to our experts and ask questions about palliative care, dying, death and bereavement. If you can’t make it then you are welcome to submit any questions in advance or join in the conversation on the day.  Just add your questions to the chat box during the discussions.
