Our vision is a world where the life chances of Looked After and vulnerable young people equal those of their peers, where they are valued for their independent contribution, and that the world is a more supportive and accepting place to live.
Valuing every individual, their needs and the contribution they can make to society and to our work. In addition, working in an inclusive and transparent way which embraces difference and promotes equality, as well as providing a safe environment in an effort to encourage and foster growth and development.
