1. Value the uniqueness of every individual
2. Uphold the responsibility to shape care and support services around each individual
3. Value communicating with individuals in a way that is meaningful to them
4. Recognise and respect how an individual’s dignity may be affected when supported with their personal care
5. Recognise that an individual’s surroundings and environments are important to their sense of dignity
6. Value workplace culture that actually promotes the dignity of everyone
7. Recognise the need to challenge care that may reduce the dignity of the individual
