Values and Vision

Our vision is for every young person to develop to their full potential and for local communities and individuals to achieve.

Our mission is to develop the whole person – body, mind and spirit.

Our values are to protect, trust, hope and persevere.

Our values underpin everything we do across all areas of our work, although each value is particularly associated with one area of work. Each of these areas has its own specific vision - see below.
