Dignity Action Day is steadily becoming recognised around the world as a day that we should stop and think about how we as carers can make a difference.
Whether we our caring for an elder, a sick loved one or a family member, this special day provides us all with the opportunity to celebrate how we can look at the way we are caring.
Dignity Action Day, initiated by the Government's Dignity board and founded in collaboration with elder care campaigner Amanda Waring marks a huge day of significance, especially for Amanda.
The Actress, Director and more commonly known fierce campaigner has worked tirelessly over the past ten years to raise awareness of the ways in which we care for others through the production of a number of award winning films, care training resources and dignity trainings.

Amanda's award winning films and resources are endorsed by many of the world's leading care institutions and hospitals as a way to train their staff on this all important subject.
