Death is inevitable but suffering is not.

About the speaker

Ally is the Director Scotland for Dignity in Dying and passionately believes that dying people deserve greater choice, control and access to services at the end of life. She is responsible for leading the campaign to introduce compassionate assisted dying legislation in Scotland.

Ally is a communications and influencing specialist with experience of leading on equality and human rights campaigns such as Independent Living, pregnancy discrimination and ending destitution and stigma for asylum seekers and refugees. Having witnessed ‘bad death’ at close quarters Ally felt motivated to challenge the suffering that many dying people currently experience. The campaign is moving at pace and Ally believes that right to die legislation is inevitable but that we need to muster our compassion and act now.
