Our Values

We are part of Dimensions, one of the country’s largest not-for-profit organisations, which has been at the forefront of national best practice in support provision for more than 40 years.

We’re a values-led organisation, which means we expect each of our colleagues to demonstrate our five core values:

Partnership

We work in partnership with others to achieve more for people. We aim to increase our knowledge and understanding of what makes good culturally sensitive person-centred support. Click to read about our All Together Better Programme.

Courage

We are guided by the courage of our convictions to make a difference. We are committed to developing and maintaining an open and inclusive culture which values and respects difference to enable us to reach shared goals.

Respect

We show respect and recognise that people’s individual contribution adds value to us all. The people we support will be treated with fairness and respect. Click to read about how the Discovery Community Fund has helped to enable adults with learning disabilities and autism to voice their concerns.
