RESPECT: We will hold ourselves to the highest standards of honesty, compassion and integrity. We will value the expertise that are inherent in all of us and celebrate the differences that make us unique.

 

ADVOCACY: We are committed to standing up against any and every type of discrimination. We will use the power of our voices to promote social justice as we believe that an act of injustice towards ‘one’ is an act injustice  against us all.

 

EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE: Our work is directly informed by research and evidence on the impact of abuse, neglect, discrimination and inter-generational trauma on the lives of those who have survived these injustices. We are committed to being invested in the latest evidence-based practices to assist those in their journey of healing.
