RESOURCES AND PUBLICATIONS

Improving our decision-makers’ understanding of the current law and its international alternatives is central to our campaign. We provide briefings to lawmakers in Westminster to expose the inadequacies of the Suicide Act, advocate in support of international evidence, and respond to public consultations and calls for evidence to highlight the implications for those who are terminally ill or intolerably suffering. 

We also work to raise awareness about everyone’s current end-of-life options and provide guidance on how effectively to campaign for a change in the law. 

ASSISTED DYING MAP

The below map of parliamentary constituencies in England and Wales displays groundbreaking research on where people who have had assisted deaths in Switzerland are known to have travelled from, the relevant MPs voting record, and the percentage of unlawful assisted deaths that go undetected by the police.

The research combines data from the main Swiss assisted dying organisations and a series of freedom of information requests sent to police authorities in England and Wales.
