A lot of our time and engery is spent raising awareness over the importance of preparing for death from a digital technological perspective. We do this both on and offline through as many mediums as possible.


National Awareness


We are actively engaged with the UK media to help to ensure that all areas surrounding digital death and digital legacy are spoken about and addressed.
