Our Values

Rights
Housing is a Human Right
• A home is fundamental to human dignity and opportunity.
• We will have the courage to advocate for the rights of those without safe, secure, affordable housing.
• We understand the causes and effects of homelessness and so will treat homeless people with compassion and empathy.

Fairness
Housing Justice for all people
• We will ensure that every person has access to our services and that every-one receives their fair share of resources.
• We will look for ways to provide, rather than refuse a service.
• We will promote the rights of people to make decisions that affect them.
• We will uphold the rights of people to make choices, even when their choices conflict with our values.
• Our decisions will be guided by fair policies and evidence, and we shall be accountable for those decisions.

Creativity
Seeking solutions
• We will focus on solutions rather than problems, and recognise that solutions require creativity and flexibility.
• We acknowledge that all people are unique and our responses will reflect their individual needs.
• We will cultivate creativity within our workforce and encourage others to do the same.

Quality
Striving to be the best
• Behaving with honesty and integrity, we will provide the best service we can.
• We will encourage and act upon feedback to improve what we do.
• We will acknowledge our deficits and encourage an environment of learning and continuous improvement.
• By celebrating our successes, we will motivate ourselves and our organisation to achieve our goals.

Collaboration
We cannot solve homelessness alone
• Ending homelessness is a shared responsibility. We cannot do it alone.
• We’ll collaborate with others who share our values and our vision to end homelessness.
• We will build trust by doing what we say we’re going to do and be responsible to our stakeholders for our part of the collaborative relationship.
