Three key values have been identified that all employees are expected to live by: We Listen….to staff, families and supporters and are aware of their individual needs. We Work in an Inclusive Way…we work in an open way and value each person’s contribution. We Do the Right Thing…we aspire to do the right thing even when it is difficult and strive to work in an honest and transparent way at all times.
