End of Life Planning tools, courses and guidance to help you prepare well for a good end of life!
Find out how prepared you are
If you’ve yet to sort out your affairs so that when you go, your loved ones don’t have to argue or guess what you want, then you’re in the right place.
We don’t know when it’s time for our last year or last breath until it’s happened, and then of course it's too late to do anything.
Whilst end of life is inevitable, it’s also the elephant in the room that everyone avoids talking about, especially with the people you care about.
If you want to save your loved ones from heartache, arguments and unnecessary expenditure after you’ve gone, then you need to create your end of life plan, well in advance!
Here at Before I Go Solutions we’re on a mission to have end of life plans be as commonplace as birth plans - just imagine that. It would be a very different world, wouldn't it?
So to help YOU prepare well for a good end of life, we provide End of Life Planning tools, courses, guidance and training to make your journey much easier, simpler and straightforward - and we help you do it in a way that is enjoyable too!

Having End of Life Plans be as commonplace as birth plans - our mission!
Inspired by her own journey and experiences with the death of her husband Philip, Jane Duncan Rogers founded Before I Go Solutions, which is a social enterprise (aka not for profit).
Our aim is to support everyone to create their own end of life plan, including those for whom our products might not be so easily accessible. This we do through our Philip Rogers Scholarship Fund.
This fund, in the name of Jane’s late husband, is to enable those from disadvantaged communities of all kinds, in all countries, to take the Facilitators Programme, and therefore bring this work to their own communities.
If you are motivated to support us in this mission, you can make a financial contribution here and huge thanks in advance!
If you are interested in applying for a training place that is supported by this Fund, then apply for a Clarity Call with Jane.
Hear from some of our customers:
"Thanks so much for the BIG course. You are absolutely brilliant at it and the course is very thorough and well thought out. I love your combination of practical, matter of fact information, plus your loving kindness and care for people’s difficult experiences" Lisa Mead, Scotland
"Jane's work has finally got us going on something we had been saying for ages 'would be a good idea', and it is much more than about just the legal necessities. Just as important for us was to explore what each of us needs to know about continuing life without our partner. This has surprisingly brought a depth of intimacy between us - looking at the possibility of incapacity and death for either one of us has not been the dreadful subject one could imagine. Now the ball is rolling it feels good and positive". Hugh & Janet, Scotland
"Every adult in the English-speaking world needs to read, and use, Before I Go: The Essential Guide to Creating a Good End of Life Plan by Jane Duncan Rogers. It’s a practical, comprehensive, upbeat guide to just about everything that needs to be addressed before you die".

"I was aware I needed to take care of my end of life stuff, as I am downsizing before a move abroad. But my procrastination had been going on for at least two years! Finally, through doing the BIG Method course, I have added to what I already have, a document of how I want my final days to be; ring-binder folder so everything is in one place; documentation re who needs to know what, and where it is, including all digital info, passwords, etc." Helen Sharp, England
"I've always been interested in learning more about the subject of death. I feel like I have a sense of understanding of when it becomes 'my time' to let go of mind, body and soul, but I didn't have any understanding of the other important tasks that should be taken care of before I go. After taking Jane's course I feel more at ease with having my documents completed and a sense of peace that my family and friends will know my wishes for my last chapter in life" Lorrie Tyler, USA
"After 1 year of Get It Done! coaching with Jane I can honestly say I feel less anxious and more excited when I get to ‘work’! My personal life and business have flourished this past year and I know that working with Jane has contributed to this growth. I can now handle the ‘to do list’ better than before, and I feel more consistent in my life and have learnt to celebrate every step of the way. Jane has gently kept me accountable and I can feel my focus on tasks has improved - I’m feeling my way through them rather than thinking what I have to do. When I do this I feel more aligned when completing tasks and thus am more productive in my work" Grace Kym Thorne, End of Life Doula, England
So many things I had not thought of
"I had a will and both powers of attorney in place when I started the Before I Go Method course and thought I was quite sorted! How wrong I was, the course showed me so many things I had not thought of - it was brilliant. Presented in a very interesting and engaging way and hearing the thoughts and experiences of the others in the group really helped me to become clear on what I wanted. The support of the facilitators was immense and they quietly guided the group without ever forcing their ideas on us. I would say do it - it is a fun, an enlightening experience, and once it is done very liberating!" Penn Shewring
From fear to confidence
"I spent countless years fearing my own death, especially leaving anything unsaid or unknown. “Before I Go” was instrumental in changing my fear into understanding, prompting acceptance and action. I now live with confidence in having my wishes and thoughts fully in place, and with a far deeper appreciation for every day I have. The comfort this has given me is invaluable and immeasurable." Geoff Mitchell
