Dignity Day 2017

Dignity In Care in the heart, mind and actions

What is Dignity Action Day?

When the Dignity in Care campaign began in November 2006, the aim was 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 on and an army of over 74, 000 Dignity Champions are all doing their bit to make a difference in peoples’ lives.

Dignity Action Day is a day to celebrate all that our staff at old friends care have accomplished in delivering dignified care for our service users. It is also a day to celebrate with those people at the centre of your care.

Why we Support Dignity Day:

  • Remind society that Dignity is everybody’s business
  • Raise awareness of the importance of Dignity in Care
  • Promote the services you provide and give someone in you care about an extra special day
  • Be part of a national celebration and demonstrate solidarity for Dignity in Care


Most of us at some point in our lives will be in contact with care services, be that in our work, as a service user, carer, relative or friend and when we do we hope we will be treated with Dignity and respect. Over 2 million health and social care staff in the UK work around the clock to provide support and care for those in need. Over 74,000 Champions from all walks of life have joined forces to provide a more dignified service for everyone.


Old Friends Care is helping to make sure that dignity is a reality for all. We ran an event as part of the national day of action to promote Dignity in Care. Please see our gallery for the photos of the day which we all thoroughly enjoyed! www.oldfriendscare.co.uk/dignity-day
