Pelham House is a care home situated in Folkestone, a little while ago I was contacted by the newly appointed activities coordinator Desirée Gillard.

Dignity in Care Campaign was first introduced in 2006 with the aim of putting dignity and respect at the basis of the care industry.  This writing competition for children in years 5 & 6 will aim for children putting into words how they would uphold the rights of a person in care and how they would promote themselves the dignity rights in care.

Desirée has asked me to be a judge for the competition, which I am really excited about and looking forward to reading what the children have to say and how they would promote it from a child’s point of view.

The campaign has over 80,000 registered Dignity Champions – be they individuals or care organisations. They are part of a nationwide movement, working individually and collectively, to ensure people have a good experience of care when they need it.

You can obtain a resource pack here.

Happy writing children
