The Creating Conversations in Croydon project, commissioned by Croydon CCG, 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.
Volunteers give talks, workshops, presentations and facilitate Death Cafes within the London Borough of Croydon to help break down this silence around death and give the people of Croydon a voice and to start thinking, talking, planning and recording their wishes.
FREE training for volunteers
The next round of training is now available. Could you commit to four days of free training and join the team of volunteers, delivering this programme?
Training will take place on Mondays from 9.30am to 4.30pm in central Croydon on September 10, 17, 24 and October 1.

Why is this project important?
Spending a short time now thinking about what you’d like to happen on the event of your death, writing your will and discussing your funeral wishes with your family can allow you to get back to the important things in life like spending time with family and friends, building good memories and even plan a bucket list.
