Our vision and values: What do we stand for?
If you would like to watch a video of our history and how we are strengthening lives, building communities and putting our faith in to action, you can see it here.
We put our vision in place through following our DARE strategy. DARE has four objectives that underpin our work.
Everything we do is underpinned by our values (GRACE UP). We are:
Generous - We want to model God's generosity to others.
Risk-taking - We have a long heritage as a pioneering movement. We give colleagues permission to seek to do new things.
Accountable - We are accountable to God and others. We want to be reliable and live responsibly to high professional standards.
Collaborative - We are committed to partner with those who share our values; we believe it enhances our work.
Expectant - We are hope-filled, expecting God to do new things among us.
Unconditional - We will serve anyone regardless of their age, gender, race, sexuality, ability, status or circumstances because God loves everyone and everyone is significant in his eyes.
Prayerful - We listen for God's voice and want to be obedient to him. We want to be like Jesus in our actions and witness.
