Planning end of life care

Dying well takes planning

Creating Conversations in Croydon

Talking about death and dying can be difficult, with many families not knowing how to start these difficult conversations.

The Creating Conversations in Croydon project seeks to work with community groups with the aim of helping everyone have a good death by recording their End Of Life Wishes.

The project has specially trained volunteers who seek to encourage local people to feel more comfortable about talking openly about death and dying.

After all we only get one chance to have our dying wishes met, which is why this project is so vital.
