What is Dignity Action Day?

The Dignity in Care campaign began in November 2006, with the aim to inspire health & social care staff and local people to place dignity and compassion at the heart of care services, and in their communities.

Ten years later the Dignity in Care campaign has over 74,000 Dignity Champions all making a difference in peoples’ lives. The first Dignity Action Day took place on 25 February 2010 and nobody could have foreseen what a truly memorable day it would turn out to be. The idea really caught the imagination and the hearts of the staff, inspiring many hundreds of them to demonstrate what being treated with dignity means to the more vulnerable members of our society.

Dignity Action Day is set to take place again on Wednesday 1st February.

It is not necessarily a day for the ‘grand gesture’ but more about taking the time to do something, however small, for people who too often feel isolated and of little value to society.

Dignity Action Day is the kick off to a month of activities that will highlight what people do to promote dignity..

As someone either working on the frontline of health & social care, or closely involved in a voluntary capacity, or who believes in the importance of dignity, you are in a position, through your own actions, to champion dignity as being fundamental to a person’s experience.

Dignity in Care asks you to please dedicate a day in February supporting Dignity Action Day.

If you would like to become a Dignity Champion, please see the attached Dignity Action Day 2017 Pack and DigniTea Event poster.

Thank you

The LSCP Team.
