Our Purpose

The Voluntary Euthanasia Party (VEP) was created to provide the compassion, dignity and choice that current legislation is denying terminally and incurably ill Australians. The party hopes to provide a clear political outlet for the overwhelming public support for voluntary euthanasia.

If you are one of the 85% of Australians who support voluntary assisted dying, please consider joining the Voluntary Euthanasia Party, it's free, or just sign up as a supporter using the Stay in Touch button below.


The Voluntary Euthanasia Party (VEP) will continue to push for the legalisation of voluntary assisted dying by contesting upper house seats in the NSW state election. The next election campaign that we will contest will be the NSW State Election being held on 23 March 2019.

Shayne Higson will be the lead candidate on the VEP’s upper house ticket. To find out more about the NSW campaign click the link below.

We have seen real momentum on our issue since the VEP's inception back in 2013, and we will continue to work as one part of the movement committed to achieving law reform. To read about past VEP campaigns, look under PARTY in the main menu.

Consider Your Vote

Fifty NSW members of the VEP came together to create two TV / Social Media commercials in the lead up to the 2015 NSW State Election. All participants have their own personal stories or a strong belief that dying with dignity should be a basic human right.

The Truth About End of Life Choices Forum

On Sunday 11 November 2018, five hundred people gathered at North Sydney Leagues Club to hear Andrew Denton in conversation with a panel of eminent health professionals as they discussed the reality of end of life care in Australia and the choices we face when we die. This important forum was co-hosted by the Voluntary Euthanasia Party NSW, Dying with Dignity NSW, Go Gentle Australia, Doctors for Assisted Dying Choice and Christians Supporting Choice for Voluntary Euthanasia. The panellists included Dr Rodney Syme, Dr David Leaf, Dr Jill Gordon, Nurse Coral Levett and Jan and Jessica Edwards. The event was live streamed on Facebook so hundreds of others who could not attend the forum didn’t miss out. You can view the full two hour forum including the Q&A section. Read More...
