About Us


The majority of Australians believe that a person suffering from a terminal illness is entitled to effective treatment of symptoms and should be able to make key decisions about when and how they die.

This majority of about 85% – demonstrated by numerous polls over the last two decades – supports the enactment of legislative change to enable the right to choose the timing and circumstances of one’s death, and to ensure that members of the medical profession and other health carers are not at risk of criminal charges in providing end-of-life assistance.
We remain grateful to our wonderful ambassadors who have assisted in the successful campaign to enact Voluntary Assisted Dying laws in Victoria, and who continue to act as advocates and supporters.
