About DWDQ

Dying With Dignity Queensland Inc (DWDQ) is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation formed on the Sunshine Coast in 1985 and formerly known as the Voluntary Euthanasia Society of Qld Inc (VESQ). After 30+ years of campaigning, Voluntary Assisted Dying was successfully passed by Queensland Parliament in September, 2021. 

DWDQ aims to ensure the successful and careful implementation of Queensland's Voluntary Assisted Dying Act, and continues to engage the community, MPs and others on matters important to choice at the end of life. This includes ongoing campaigning in support of Voluntary Assisted Dying and potential reviews to Queensland's laws in the future.
