Toolkit to ensure diginity in care in Flintshire

EVERY social care worker in Flintshire will be given new guidance as part of a major campaign to ensure the people they look after are treated with the dignity they deserve.

The toolkit has been put together by Care Forum Wales, the organisation which represents 500 private care providers.

It will be available in a downloadable form on the Care Forum Wales website and will combine film, audio and written material to promote dignity and respect in the care sector.

The campaign has been given the seal of approval by a leading member of the Welsh Government when it was launched.

Gwenda Thomas, deputy minister for children and social services, said: “The dignity toolkit is excellent and incredibly useful in explaining how we ensure dignity in care is promoted.

“I am delighted to see the launch of the toolkit and I will encourage its use and by working together ensure that its aspirations become a reality for people in Wales.”
