Mayor Of Dudley Visits Dignity Discussion Forum

People who use adult social care services came together on Wednesday 1st February to discuss what dignity means to them, and were joined by The Mayor of Dudley who thanked everyone for their contributions during the day.

Dudley Council worked in conjunction with user led organisations, Dudley Centre for Inclusive Living and Disability in Action, as well as other partners, to put together the ‘Digni-TEA’ Summit and discuss experiences of dignity in care.

The event, which was attended by many local users of adult social care and carers, had a huge following on social media due to Wednesday 1 February being national Dignity Action Day.

A draft Dignity Charter will be created following feedback received at the Summit, which was led by Paul Astley from Dudley Council’s Access and Prevention who ensured everyone at the event had an input into the charter’s creation. Speaking at the event, Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Mohammed Hanif, said:

“Many thanks to Dudley Centre for Inclusive Living and Disability in Action for bringing together so many service users today. There’s been excellent feedback about the day and it’s fantastic to see everyone working together.

"Also, a massive thank you to Paul Astley and his team for all their hard work setting up this event.”
