Our vision is to make a positive difference to women’s lives. Our mission is to provide homes and services which offer a springboard to independent women to achieve their potential. Our values, co-created with our staff and residents, reflect both our history and our future: Positivity, Integrity, One team, Never forgetting the customer, Equality, Empowerment and Responsibility.
Our team has embraced an exciting period of change and modernisation delivering our patch-based working approach where frontline staff work as one team helping each other to deliver services and support our residents’ independence and well-being.
