A PUBLIC consultation aimed at finding out Islander’s views on proposals to allow assisted dying has begun.
Last year, the States Assembly voted to permit the move ‘in principle’ and make arrangements for the provision of an assisted dying service.
More detailed proposals are due to be considered by by Members in the autumn.
In the meantime, views are being sought from Islanders which are due to be used to help shape the proposals.
Anyone wishing to contribute can email firstname.lastname@example.org, submit their comments through sli.do using the code #assisteddyingjsy or attend one of a number of in-person events.
The first in-person session takes place at St Clement Parish Hall on 18 March at 11.30am. Events will also be held at St Brelade’s Parish Hall on 24 March at noon and at the Library on 30 March at 4.30pm as well as the following day at 11.45am.
More information and details of how to book a place at one of the in-person sessions is available by clicking here. The consultation will close at the start of April.
