Our CORE values
COMMITTED TO OUR CLIENTS – we deliver our own services, and collaborate with others, to do the very best for the people we work with; their interests are always at the forefront of our minds
WELCOMING TO EVERYONE – our staff make sure that everyone is included, and we ensure that everyone we work with can access our services in a suitable environment and in whatever way suits them best.
AIM TO BE THE BEST – we take a proven, planned, and structured approach to making sure people get the support they need, supported by skilled, caring and committed staff, and by robustly measuring the outcomes that we deliver.
WORKING TOGETHER – we work closely with organisations with similar aims, and with the business community, working to develop and deliver services in the most integrated way, maximising the value of our collective efforts.
BUILDING CAPACITY – we work with people, raising their aspirations and helping them develop the skills and knowledge that will have a lasting impact throughout their lives.
ALWAYS LEARNING – whether from each other as colleagues, from clients, or from our partners, and we make sure that we apply that learning to bold new ideas and to improving services (so they are not only different but better) and to sharing this with others who share our aims and values.
