‘Five steps to sort out your Digital Legacy today’ leaflet is launched and available for the general public

 DeadSocial have released a new resource to help the general public think about, address and start sorting out their digital legacy.

This is the first ever-physical leaflet (that we know of) that has been produced and circulated to address this increasingly important area. Five steps to sort out your Digital Legacy has been designed and printed ahead Dying Matters Awareness Week (18 – 24 May 2015.).

The material has been made available in both English and Welsh to help ensure the widest possible reach across the UK:
