Our vision is an Australia where we all have choice at the end of life. We empower people to choose the care that is right for them, including the option of voluntary assisted dying.
Go Gentle Australia was founded in 2016 by broadcaster Andrew Denton. We are a charity working nationally to promote choice at the end of life, including the option of voluntary assisted dying.
We were instrumental in passing voluntary assisted dying laws in all six states.
These compassionate laws allow terminally ill, mentally competent adults with 6-12 months left to live to request help from their doctor to end their suffering. Voluntary assisted dying is also sometimes called assisted dying, voluntary euthanasia or medical assistance to die.
