As the founder and managing director at Dignity Network, I’m incredibly proud to be launching Dignity Network’s website; it’s been a long time in my head, but thanks to the wonderful team at Design Kind, it has finally become a reality. We sincerely hope that you like it!
Dignity Network Ltd. was established as a not-for-profit company and registered charity late last year. Now that we have our website it feels so much more real. I hope it provides all the information that you want to know about us.
Many people who know me know that Dignity Network is my passion. We are about supporting people to have the best possible end of life. I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported me and played a part in getting Dignity Network started.
Because we are a contemporary organisation, our members can be located anywhere in Australia. As our network grows over time, we aim to have more and more health professionals and volunteers actively involved in providing care and support wherever communities want our services.
You don’t have to subscribe to any specific view on dying and what happens at end-of-life to join us — we respect every person’s right to hold their own individual views on this, and insist only that our members commit to respecting this principle in all aspects of their work with Dignity Network.
We value an inclusive culture; you can be any age, gender, race or identify with any sexual orientation, ethnic or cultural group or religious beliefs – we don’t discriminate and we genuinely value diversity.
We genuinely care about our people as individuals, and commit to doing all we can to ensure our members thrive, so that together we can keep providing outstanding services to those who are preparing for, or nearing the end of their life, and their loved ones.
We are keen to hear any feedback concerning what you like and what you don’t like about our website and especially about our blog page; how else will we know the kind of content you are interested in reading if we don’t ask you and we aren’t open to receiving your feedback.
We plan to regularly post new content every month, as well as share links to other interesting articles. If you would like to write about a topic you are passionate about and post it on our blog page, please get in touch via our Contact Us page.
My next post is already in draft. I have decided to write about a subject close to my heart: the decision about whether to die in hospital or at home; who has a say in this decision, and some reflections about power relationships at a time of experiencing deep personal grief and loss.
I sincerely hope you will visit this web page again soon and stay in touch with us.
