Our Values


Being open, truthful and realistic with people. Paying attention to young people when we are with them; hearing and prioritising their voices. Ensuring we live our values and live up to our reputation and to public perception.


Owning the situations that we’ve been a part of; taking responsibility for the outcome, whether it is good or bad; learning and moving forward from mistakes. Being consistent, dependable and trustworthy. Praising people for their efforts and achievements. Creating opportunities for people to take action and to lead. Taking responsibility for increasing own knowledge and learning.


Being fair and impartial trying to redress the inequalities that many young people experience or have come to expect; understanding that one size does not fit all. Respecting people’s feelings, wishes and rights.


Encouraging hope and aspirational thinking; starting with successes rather than past failures. Recognising the power of strengths, passions, and interests. Igniting sparks! Believing in young people and inspiring them to see possibilities for their future. Supporting young people through tough times to solve problems and reach their goals.


Making relationships central to absolutely everything. Making young people feel known and valued. Focussing on building positive, trusted relationships and community networks. Connecting with people and exposing them to new ideas, experiences, opportunities and places.


Expressing care, warmth and welcoming in our approach and in our actions. Showing young people we enjoy being with them and that they matter to us; validating lived experience. Helping people speak up for themselves and speaking up for those who can’t. Being prepared to get involved and to act.
