Inform yourself about the new VAD law

Since the early 1980s the principal objective of Dying with Dignity WA has been to advocate for enhanced choice at the end of life, and to work for the successful passage through the WA Parliament of voluntary assisted dying legislation that is both safe and workable. This objective was achieved in December 2019 when the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2019 passed into law. It will become effective after an implementation period of up to 18 months.

The Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2019 will soon take effect in Western Australia - probably in mid-2021.

This is a law for all Western Australians, even though few of us may choose it.

Victoria and WA have laid the foundation stones. Become informed and help DWDWA to extend this safe, workable and compassionate law to all Australia.
