About us

Dying with Dignity NSW is an advocacy organisation pursuing a change in the law to enhance choice at the end of life. We seek legislation that enables competent adults experiencing unrelievable suffering, from a terminal or incurable illness, to receive medical assistance to end their life peacefully, at the time of their choosing.

Dying with Dignity NSW has existed as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee since 1983. From 1983 to 2009 we were called The Voluntary Euthanasia Society of NSW. In 2009 we changed our name to Dying with Dignity NSW, to reflect our concern for the dignity and autonomy of those who suffer needlessly at the end of their life. Our ACN has always been 002 545 235 and our ABR has always been 22 002 545 235 – click for ABR lookup for details
