    I have previous used two ways for this, both with succes.

    One way is to use the MessagingCenter: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/xamarin-forms/messaging-center/ and the subscribe from either the ContentPage or Listview, and use your custom Cell to send.

    The other way would be creating your custom cell with a Page in the constructor like this:

    public class CustomCell : ViewCell
        public CustomCell(MyContentPage myContentPage)
        // More stuff
        //When delete button is pressed, use this   

    Then i could use the cell like this on MyContentPage which is the page that contains the ListView:

    public class MyContentPage : ContentPage
        public MyContentPage()
            // Setup listview..
            myListview.ItemTemplate = new DataTemplate(new CustomCell(this));

    I bet there are other ways of doing this, but so far this has worked just fine :)
