Our Vision & Mission
Children, young people and families are free from a life of poverty and inequality.
We will work with children, young people and families to improve life chances.
Compassion. Dignity. Excellence. Integrity. Respect.
COMPASSIONATE – WE CARE ABOUT PEOPLE AND THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE
We ensure that compassion is central to the programmes and support that we provide. We respond with humanity and kindness to each person’s needs and wants.
DIGNITY – WE VALUE EVERYONE
We value every person – whether children and young people, their families or carers, or staff – as an individual. We respect their aspirations and commitments in life and seek to understand their priorities, needs and limits.
EXCELLENCE – WE ARE TRAILBLAZERS
We continually progress and improve through listening, learning and innovation.
We deliver a high-quality service to meet personal, organisational and children, young people, and families’ expectations. We carry our work out with enthusiasm and pursue a ‘can-do’ attitude in all that we do, ensuring our work meets the needs of all existing and potential children, young people, and families.
INTEGRITY – WE ARE HONEST, FAIR AND ACCOUNTABLE
We take personal and collective responsibility for our actions and how we use resources. We are trustworthy, consistent, and open about our successes, challenges, and mistakes. We welcome challenge and feedback to improve our practice.
RESPECT – WE VALUE THE IMPORTANCE OF EQUALITY, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSIVITY
We champion the rights for all and particularly the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child. We continuously reflect on our daily practice and policies and strive to improve to ensure equality, diversity and inclusivity is at the heart of our planning, delivery and evaluation. We ensure all are treated with dignity and respect regardless of their culture, religion, age, race, sexual orientation, or disability.
