The Role of Supporting Relationships in Reducing the Risk of Abuse and Neglect In this assignment I will produce a magazine article that explains the role of supporting relationships in reducing the risk of abuse and neglect as well as evaluating the role of multi-agency working.
Core principles of care:
‘’ Dignity is concerned with how people feel, think and behave in relation to the worth or value of themselves and others. To treat someone with dignity is to treat them as being of worth, in a way that is respectful of them as valued individuals.’’ This means that you should always think about what other individuals may be thinking or feeling whilst treating them the same as you would wish to be treat by another individual. Everyone should be treat with dignity as everyone has the same human worth and are all equal in society.
Equality; ‘’Equality in the UK is about fostering and promoting the right to be different, to be free from discrimination, and to have choice and dignity and to be valued as an individual, with a right to their own beliefs and values.’’ This means that individuals should be able to be themselves without having the fear that another individual is judging them. Giving people equal opportunities means treating every person as an individual without making judgements. By enforcing equality it should create a way of life in which individuals of all backgrounds and experiences feel valued and appreciated. An example of promoting equality in a health and social care setting includes delivering services and options that will meet diverse needs of adults such as in a residential home. Enforcing equality in health and social care settings can help to reduce the risk of abuse in adults because all victims of different backgrounds will feel as if they are equal to receive fair justice and treatment.
