The Dignity in Care campaign, which is led by the National Dignity Council, was launched in November 2006 and aims to put dignity and respect at the heart of UK care services.

The Dignity in Care factors include:

• Choice and Control. We aim to enable people to make choices about the way they live with their illness and the care they receive.

• Communication. We will speak to people respectfully and will listen to what they have to say, thereby ensuring clear dialogue.

• Eating and Nutritional Care. We’ll provide a choice of nutritious, appetising meals which meet the needs and choices of individuals, and we’ll provide support with eating when it’s needed.

• Pain Management. We’ll ensure people living with pain have the right help and medication to reduce suffering and to improve their quality of life.

• Personal Hygiene. We’ll work to enable people to maintain their usual standards of personal hygiene.

• Practical Assistance. Where possible, we will try to advise people about budgets, living environments and access to services.

• Privacy. We’ll maintain confidentiality and personal space.

• Social Inclusion. We’ll support people and will work to help them keep in contact with family and friends and to participate in social activities.

At Weston Hospicecare, we’re dedicated to providing people with dignity and respect.

We welcome feedback on what you think about the care we provide, so if you have any comments or complaints regarding dignity in care at Weston Hospicecare, please call 01934 423900 and ask about our complaints procedure.

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
