It has been funded by Croydon Clinical Commissioning group to support the people of Croydon to begin the process of change.
Bringing “Dying Matters” out from the medical world back into our communities, and accepted as a part of our life cycle.
This proactive project aims to inform and encourage people in their end of life wishes and choices including where they may wish to die, understanding the legal medical directives, reflect on their funeral wishes but above all to share their wishes with family and friends. Research has shown this gives all involved, peace of mind, reducing family conflicts.
