Dudley Council and its partners are establishing a Dignity Charter. The Charter will be an agreement between local people and service providers about the standard of service that can be expected in relation to dignity. The Dudley Dignity Charter will be based upon ten dignity principles that describe values and actions that high quality services will provide.
If you are 18 or over and are receiving care and support service in Dudley or have contact with Dudley care and support services please help us by taking between 10 and 20 minutes to answer questions about dignity. The results of the survey will be used to identify where care and support services are doing well in meeting dignity standards and where they need to improve.
Whether you are receiving care and support services, caring for someone who is receiving care and support services or a relative or friend of someone receiving care and support services we would like to hear from you. Use the below link to take part in the survey. Closes on 6th January 2017
