why
Everybody deserves great support for themselves and for their families at the end of life. We know that at the moment this doesn't always happen.

We are bringing together a diverse group to think and work collectively to improve people's experiences around the end of life. This includes providers, commissioners, community organisations and people with direct experience of being supported or needing support at end of life.

We want to understand what dying well means for people living in Lambeth and Southwark, and what support is needed to facilitate this. By speaking to people in the boroughs about their experiences of death, dying, loss and end of life care, we want to bring new rich insight to the way in which people are supported through this stage of life.

We're excited about bringing together the wealth of experience of families and professionals, the new energy, ideas and capacity of the community, and our deep understanding of innovation and service design processes. Together, we believe great things will happen.
