Nominations have opened for the 2017 Dignity and Respect Awards.
If you know of a friend, volunteer or carer who goes the extra mile in supporting people in a way that promotes dignity, respect and well being it’s your chance to nominate them.
Now in their fifth year, the awards are open to the public as well as professionals. They are for individuals, teams and organisations that have made a difference by putting dignity, respect and well-being at the heart of the care they provide.
Mike Appleyard, cabinet member for Health and Wellbeing at Buckinghamshire County Council said: ‘This is a great way for us all to say thank you to the many wonderful people who make a difference to those they care for by treating them with the respect they deserve.‘
The awards are part of Buckinghamshire County Council’s ongoing campaign to raise awareness of every person’s right to be treated with dignity and respect whenever they need care and support.
Nominations will be short-listed and a short film posted onto the website so that the public can view the films of each short-listed entry and cast their votes online ahead of the Dignity and Respect Awards event which takes place on Friday 19th May 2017 at the Oculus in Aylesbury.
