Advisory Board

Our assisted dying public engagement project is being overseen by an Advisory Board comprised of Council members and external experts in a variety of backgrounds including technical expertise and knowledge in public engagement and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Board’s role is to give impartial, informed advice on the project process and planning. Members of the Advisory Board are acting in a personal capacity and have not been appointed to represent the views of any organisation.
