We put the people we support at the centre of everything we do, but we know that this can only be achieved through our front-line staff.


The Way We Work

We’re Strong – we know we work for a well-run organisation, with access to the necessary tools and support to do our job well. We have the support of our manager in supporting people to achieve their goals and to challenge injustice.

We’re Honest – we are open and honest and we listen to different views.

We’re Responsive – we know what we do matters and we go the extra mile on behalf of people we support and colleagues.

We’re United – we value our people supporting them to work and achieve the best for themselves, the people we support and the wider organisation, working in a consistent and united way.
