Dignity in Care
Dignity in the heart, mind and actions

At Liverpool Social Care Partnership we have been working with a number of Liverpool based Social Care Employers, Liverpool City Council and the Northwest Dignity Group to develop a number of dignity resources that can be used locally to promote, audit and ensure that dignity is upheld throughout Liverpool. This project started with the development of a Dignity Charter, and has now lead to the production of a number of toolkits, available free for employers which can be downloaded below.

Dignity Audit Toolkit Downloads

The Dignity Audit Toolkits were developed as a quick and simple document designed to promote dignity and provide a template for organisations to check that dignity is being upheld within the work they do.

What is a Dignity Audit?

A Dignity Audit is a simple exercise, prompted by questions and advice within our Dignity Audit Toolkit, to analyse the care you provide and the amount of dignity and respect which your organisation provides. From the audit you can note any actions or ideas you may have for future developments around dignity.

Why is there multiple toolkits?

Depending on the type and size of your organisation, certain types of toolkit may not be relevant to you, we understand that it can be difficult to complete a corporate questionnaire if you are a small provider with 5 staff. We hope that providing a customised toolkit for the different types of care environments we can prevent wasted time looking over questions that aren't relevant to you.
