Birmingham supports Dignity Action Day

By on 23/02/2011 in News

Birmingham City Council is supporting care workers and service users to promote Dignity in Care.

The national Dignity Action Day (25th February) looks at ways of ensuring people in care are treated as individuals with choice and control over their lives.

Councillor Sue Anderson, cabinet member for adults and communities, said: “Obviously people's dignity should be paramount in everything we do, year round, but this day is a chance to highlight the issue.

“Dignity Action Day asks health and social care workers to take action in their place of work to promote dignity, and asks members of the public to do what they can too.

“I want Birmingham to be part of a national celebration of dignity in care, which will also serve as a reminder to communities that this is not just the responsibility of health and social care staff, but that everyone can play a role.”

The Shakti day centre will be holding a number of activities on 24th February such as hosting a professional mehndi person to do henna patterns, an exercise morning, cards and board games and a fundraising project.

Norman Power centre will be holding an extended pampering session on 25th February which is open to non-residents.
