National ACP Day Resources

A number of free to use, and easy to download resources can be found below. These have been created to help encourage participation, self empowerment and societal action. 

We encourage YOU to make a ‘pledge’ of a task that you complete. You might also want to educate and empower others through the sharing of information, educational prompts and documentation.

Make a pledge...

Download and share a pledge card onto your favourite social networks. This will let other people know that you are taking control of your future health, social care, wellbeing and wider wishes.

Click on the green ‘Download’ button underneath the image you would like to share. This will open the image in a ‘new window’. Click on the download icon (top righthand corner) and the file will be saved onto the device you are using. The download icon looks like the image shown below:

Once downloaded upload the image from your computer, tablet or phone to Facebook, X (formerly known as Twitter), Instagram etc with your add your own personal message. 

"From a community engagement and public health perspective, a national day that promotes advance care planning has the potential to lead to a culture change. This is especially important within communities that may have limited trust or access to traditional health care settings."

Empower others...

Empower others with their advance care planning journey by sharing a motivational card on your preferred social network. 

Through awareness and leadership in this area you might help friends, family members and other members of society feel comfortable thinking, talking and documenting their wishes.

Downloading images (extra support)

If you require extra support downloading one of the social media sharing cards (as shown above) you are in the right place. Here is a quick tutorial:

  1. Choose the image you would like to share from the list above.

  2. Click on the green download button.

  3. A new window will open with the image (similar to the image shown in the righthand side). Click on the download icon. This is highlighted in the image with a red circle and has two arrows pointing towards it.

  4. Once downloaded locally simply upload and share it to your preferred social networks,
