A Dignity Champion is someone who believes passionately that being treated with dignity is a basic human right, not an optional extra. They believe care services must be compassionate, person centered and efficient. They are willing to do something to achieve this.
Our challenge is to put dignity at the heart of care services.
Dignity Champions are willing to:
stand up and challenge disrespectful behaviour rather than tolerate it
act as good role models by treating other people with respect, particularly those who are less able to stand up for themselves
speak up about dignity to improve the way services are organised and delivered
influence and inform colleagues
listen to and understand the views and experiences of citizens.
