Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the subject of death has become more prominent in our daily lives than ever before – and yet we still find it incredibly hard to talk about. While this is understandable, it’s important to overcome if we want to better prepare ourselves and our loved ones for the inevitable.

In partnership with How to Academy, our How to Die Well livestream panel event saw host Andrea Fox join Rankin, Sarah Pennells, Dr Kathryn Mannix and Rhik Samadder to share personal experiences, as well as emotional, practical and financial guidance, to show that dying well can be a fundamental part of living well.
