About Nikkan Woodhouse:
Nikkan Woodhouse started the Brighton and Lewes branch of Dignity in Dying two years ago. Dignity in Dying is a national campaign which seeks to support legislation that would enable terminally ill people in the UK an assisted death in certain, safeguarded circumstances. The branch supports the work of the campaign by educating regional politicians and the public about the issues around assisted dying legislation, often a discussion which is highly emotive and raises legitimate concerns.
About the presentation:
Nikkan will be presenting the current position in the UK on assisted dying; what is now the law, what proposed legislation has been debated, and what is happening in an important legal case which may challenge the status quo. She will explain some of the legislation that is in place in other countries and share the reports of how some more liberal regimes have found this to work in practice.
Nikkan has always been a supporter of Dignity in Dying legislation; believing in choice and from a social justice perspective. Her early career was based in the law and lobbying and she continues some of this experience with this campaign as a volunteer.
