We are an equal opportunities organisation, proud of our Board gender balance, but focused on further improving our diversity. We, therefore, encourage applications from all members of the community.
My Death, My Decision is a grassroots, not-for-profit campaign group that wants the laws of our country to allow those who are terminally ill or incurably suffering the option of a legal, safe, and compassionate assisted death.
We follow a line of predecessor organisations in representing the interests of those facing constant and unbearable suffering, when no other right-to-die organisations would, and to advocate on their behalf to secure a lasting change in the law.
We have quickly become one of the leading assisted dying organisations in England and Wales, and are at the forefront of social change: nearly 90% of the public now favours a change in the law to allow assisted dying for those who are incurably suffering or terminally ill.
We are committed to an evidence-based law which would balance individual choice alongside robust safeguards, and we are not afraid to confront uncomfortable truths or expose specious arguments.
Through the work of our members, supporters, patrons and activists we help to broaden the assisted dying debate and seek to enshrine the values of autonomy, dignity, and compassion into assisted dying legislation.
If you are passionate about a humane assisted dying Law in this country, this is an organisation where you can make a huge difference. We are a committed, friendly team, mostly comprising volunteers - including all of the board.
Directors are unpaid, but reasonable out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed. The Board meets quarterly. Currently the meetings take place remotely, however we hope in the future to return to face-to-face meetings which usually take place in London. We may interview applicants as and when they apply, rather than await the response deadline - in which case we will withdraw the opportunity.
