We work in ways that support people to live in peace and dignity, and to have equal access to opportunities regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, or social status.
We aim to treat all individuals with respect and to approach each other and those we work with in an inclusive and non-judgmental manner.
Belief in Change
We uphold the belief that conflict is a source of possibility for individual and social change.
We aim to create an ethos of collaboration that values contributions from all members, partners and service users.
