Ethos

Our Motto:

“Working together to change lives and transform our community”

 

Our Vision:

“A thriving community where everyone feels connected, valued and fulfilled.”

 

Our Mission:

“Working to break down barriers, bring people together and build people up”.

 

Our Values:

 

INCLUDING

Everyone is a valuable member of our community and we are shaped to care for and support each other, celebrating diversity, challenging prejudice, breaking down barriers, building bridges and widening horizons.

 

CELEBRATING

We affirm the goodness and beauty we see in individuals and creation. We encourage an attitude of thankfulness and celebration – even in the midst of life’s disappointments and challenges. We view the glass as half full, not half empty and the world as a place of possibility. Every cloud has a silver lining and we seek to make and recall good memories together.

 

EMPOWERING

Our role is to work WITH others, encouraging everyone to be the best they can be in body, mind and spirit, developing their own unique gifts and seizing opportunities. We don’t do things for people that they can do for themselves or impose our views or agendas on others. We support people to overcome barriers which prevent them from fulfilling their immense potential towards greater resilience both individually and collectively.

 

Our Strategic Objectives:

In order to work towards our vision and mission, the following strategic objectives will underpin our work over the next 3 – 5 years:

  1. To help people to connect so that we reduce isolation and have a more integrated community.

  2. To support people to be physically active, so that we have a healthier community.

  3. To help people to take time to reflect in our busy society, so that we can improve our mental health and wellbeing.

  4. To provide opportunities to keep on learning so that we have a knowledgeable and skilled community.

  5. To provide people with opportunities to give of their time and or money so that we can inspire local action and increase capacity to effect positive change.

  6. To help more people to celebrate so that we encourage an attitude of thankfulness and celebration – even in the midst of life’s disappointments and challenges.

  7. To provide support for people in times of difficulty so that we are able to develop a more resilient community.
