Who are we?

Friends at the End works to advance human rights (especially of those in need by reason of age, ill health, and other disadvantage) by increasing public knowledge concerning end-of-life choices and dignified death and supporting those suffering distress at and towards the end of their lives.

Friends at the End believe that medically assisted dying should be available to all mentally competent adults with either a terminal illness or an incurable condition, causing hopeless and unbearable suffering with no reasonable alternative to relieve it, provided this is their own persistent request.
