Our vision: Quality Support to Transform Lives

Our mission is to support the most vulnerable. It is based on respect for the individual and on the values and principles of therapeutic support, whereby people with complex, learning, substance misuse and/or mental health needs are helped, and help each other, to recover.

Our Values: are those which were identified through a process of consultation by the Communities of Communities in 2008.

Attachment
Healthy attachment is a developmental requirement for all human beings, and should be seen as a basic human right.

Containment
A safe and supportive environment is required for an individual to develop, to grow, or to change.

Respect
People need to feel respected and valued by others to be healthy. Everybody is unique and nobody should be defined or described by their problems alone.

Communication
All behaviour has meaning and represents communication which deserves understanding.

Interdependence
Personal well-being arises from one’s ability to develop relationships which recognise mutual need.

Relationships
Understanding how you relate to others and how others relate to you leads to better intimate, family, social and working relationships.

Participation
Ability to influence one’s environment and relationships is necessary for personal well-being.  Being involved in decision-making is required for shared participation, responsibility, and ownership.

Process
There is not always a right answer and it is often useful for individuals, groups and larger organisations to reflect rather than act immediately.

Balance
Positive and negative experiences are necessary for healthy development of individuals, groups and the community.

Responsibility
Each individual has responsibility to the group, and the group in turn has collective responsibility to all individuals in it.
