I live in the NT or ACT. Can I access voluntary assisted dying?
The Northern Territory and the ACT do not yet have voluntary assisted dying laws. The ACT plans to debate a law in 2023. The NT is yet to commit to a timeline.
However, there are some exceptional circumstances where an eligible person in the ACT or NT could access a voluntary assisted dying law in New South Wales or Queensland if
a) you live on the border and receive the majority of your health care in that state or
b) you can show on compassionate grounds (e.g. your family live in the state) why you should be able to access their voluntary assisted dying laws.
If you think this applies to you, please email [email protected] and we can provide further details.
