Why is this project so important?
Dignity - what does it mean to you?
Treating people with kindness, respect and compassion is always important; but Dignity has never been needed more than during the Covid19 pandemic. Imagine you, a relative or friend are feeling alone, are ill or in need of care, hospitalised or dying, without any dignity or compassion? You may say that was unthinkable, or something that happens in other countries, but unfortunately, we all know someone or may have been that person who has experienced being treated without dignity.
Who are we and what do we do?
Introducing the National Dignity Council
The Dignity Council are a charity run solely by amazing volunteers who work tirelessly alongside a growing army of dedicated Dignity champions . We ensure dignity is upheld for everyone, regardless of class, race, gender, religion, abilities, or anything else other than seeing the human. Since 2006 we have campaigned for everyone to have the right for their voice to be heard.
Our postcard resources
These free resources are available to individuals and care providers and have been designed to support the promotion of dignity and improve the quality of care and the experience of those using services in such as hospitals, community services, care homes and home support services. They serve as a reminder for everyone about what to expect and why, helping people be more confident to stand up for their right to dignified care.
