Today is Dignity Action Day, a national awareness day that aims to ensure people who use care services are treated as individuals and are given choice, control and a sense of purpose in their daily lives. At Volunteering Matters, dignity and respect are values that we hold dear, particularly when it comes to supporting vulnerable people.
