Assisted Dying

The topic of assisted dying may be raised with you as a volunteer. It is therefore important that you understand both the Association’s position on assisted dying and our policy statement on it.

When carrying out your volunteering role, whatever your own personal beliefs on assisted dying, it is important that you speak on behalf of the Association rather than giving your own views.

If you are asked about assisted dying by a person with MND, their carer or family member, do encourage them to call MND Connect on 0808 802 6262.

If you have any concerns or questions about our policy statement on assisted dying, please contact the Volunteering team.
