The Voluntary Euthanasia Party (NSW) hosted a Voluntary Assisted Dying Forum at Parliament House, Sydney on Thursday 9th June 2016. The forum aimed to facilitate a serious discussion about what a voluntary assisted dying law should look like in Australia. It is about finding the right balance between providing access for those with the greatest need while providing enough safeguards to protect the vulnerable.
