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 was incorporated as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee in 1983.  From 1983 until 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 is 002 545 235
