We currently are a small team of eight with a youth advisory group.
Our board has six members and three independent advisors.
We also enjoy the support of many wonderful volunteers who enjoy being part of it all.
We have developed a core set of principles that guide and underpin everything we do:
Respectful – To serve and respect everyone no matter their gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, religion, age, sexual orientation or physical and mental capability.
Inclusive – Everyone should be able to take part, this is supported by actively engaging, networking and developing partnerships on this principle. Seeking to work cooperatively creates effective, integrated, well distributed and sustainable resources.
Enthusiastic & Fun – To bring enthusiasm, fun and positive energy into our dealings with people and especially into delivering projects and developing resources. We believe it brings out the best in people.
Participation – People are involved, included and listened to in every project. Participation is far beyond a box-ticking exercise; it is our identity.
Innovative, creative and fresh – Media and resources should be creative and fresh, not just dusting up what’s been done before. We work together to find new ways to do things that solve problems and deliver better results.
Excellence – Quality is part of sustainability: 'good enough' is not good enough! With the flood of media and resources out there – average won’t get any attention. That’s why we commit to our Quality Assurance model and involving everyone in helping us review and continually improve.
Safe – We aim at all times for people to be physically and emotionally safe. This includes working to our policies, CRB checks, careful interviewing, continuous training, fluid communication, creative planning and ‘switched on’ delivery.
Eco-friendly – We carbon offset our work, we Reduce, Re-use and Recycle where appropriate. However, promoting and supporting an eco-friendly culture will make the biggest impact.
