Community-powered change

Do you want to play a part in improving people’s experiences of death, dying and loss?

We know that death happens to all of us but the way it happens, and how we respond to it, can have lasting impacts.

At St Christopher’s we don’t think we have all the answers. We work with local people, groups, schools and organisations to explore and improve experiences of the end of life and how we deal with it as people and communities.

We want everybody to have an opportunity to make change or have a say in how it happens. These changes can be on an everyday basis, like supporting your elderly neighbour, or using your experience to help someone else learn how to do something, or wider, campaigning for policy change on an important area together.

Our Community Action programme offers opportunities for people to get involved in changing things for the better. Get involved and help to find new ways of supporting each other, tackling challenges and changing the way we do things.
