Derby City is celebrating the Dignity Action Day on Thursday 1st February 2018 and Derby Safeguarding Adults Board is hosting the Derby Annual Dignity Tea at the Council House.

The team are looking for nominations of people who have shown great respect for others personally or professionally and who have acted as a ‘Dignity Champion’ so they can be acknowledged at the event.

A Dignity Champion is someone who believes passionately that being treated with dignity is a basic human right, not an optional extra. The national dignity in care campaign has aimed to encourage people to register as dignity champions and there are already over 1000 of them in Derby and Derbyshire. Many of them are making changes, usually simple, often cost-free changes which improve the services people have. This is the key point about dignity work – it is about practical changes at the face-to-face point of service delivery.

We want to encourage more people not only to sign up as champions but to also give active meaning to the role by inviting you and your team to check yourselves out in applying for the dignity award.

You can find out more about becoming a dignity champion on the dignity in care website and about our dignity award and 10 point dignity do’s checklist on the Derby. Safeguarding Adults Board website.

The Dignity Tea will be between 3pm – 4:30pm in the Jacob Rivers VC Reception Room, 1st Floor, The Council House, Corporation Street, Derby, DE1 2FS
