It is important that members of the general public and professionals have thought about their digital assets in relation to end of life. In doing so conversations and planning can help ensure that peoples wishes are adhered to in both the real world and the digital world. This can also help reduce the likelihood of personal photos and videos being lost. Access to devices and online services can also help remove hurdles from administrative tasks like funeral planning.
All of the leaflets we develop are free to view, download and print. If your charity or not for profit organisation would like support developing information specifically for the communities you support please do contact us directly.
Sorting out your Digital Assets and Digital Legacy Leaflet
Please find our public awareness leaflet below. We developed the content with a number of patient, professional and general public focus groups.
The leaflet’s content is copyrighted however we are more than happy for you to use and share it. All our leaflets can be downloaded (as a PDF), printed and folded. This would ideally be carried out by a local printing company. It will cost between £110-£140 to print 1000 of the public awareness leaflets shown at 170 GSM. Once printed they are a really useful resource to provide for the general public and are often given to outpatients and included in hospice welcome packs. To learn about how digital assets and digital legacy conversations should form a holistic approach to advance care planning click here. To learn about how to use the leaflet in conjunction with our digital assets and digital legacy framework click here.

Digital Legacy Factsheet
We created a digital legacy factsheet with Dying Matters for Dying Matters Awareness Week 2017. It was created to help dispel myths around digital legacy and highlight ways in which the general public can think and plan for their digital legacy.
The factsheet can be downloaded by clicking here
