Ethos & Values

Community and Person Centred

We take a needs and asset led approach in supporting communities and individuals. We believe organisations should facilitate and support, backed by appropriate evidence. We never impose external solutions; this rarely works and never lasts.

Local Focus

We seek understanding, develop solutions and make decisions with, and as close to, those affected as possible. The greater the distance between power and impact, the greater the risk of long-term failure.

Sharing and Learning

We recognise the role of innovation & learning from experience. Sharing information & understanding should be automatic where it benefits people & communities.

Fairness and Equality

Everyone has something to give and should be given a fair chance to reach their potential. The most excluded should be supported to fulfil their talent and ambition.

Building Trust

People succeed where they work together for a common good. Trusting one another to act with integrity and commitment demands compassion, honesty, transparency and respect.
