Values and principles
The Brunswick Centre enables people from the communities we serve to make informed choices, build healthier relationships and live positive lives free of stigma.
Values and Principles
Social justice – We are committed to challenging oppression and social inequality on a range of levels, such as personal, cultural and institutional.
Equality - We will value and take account of difference in our engagement with individuals and community groups and will work in a way that promotes, encourages and supports everyone to reach their full potential.
Unconditional Positive Regard – We will value the person as doing their best to move forward in their lives constructively and respect the person’s right to make their own decisions. (Exceptions to this would be around safeguarding duties - under the 1989 Children Act, Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 and 2005 Mental Capacity Act).
Person Centred Approach – Commitment to ensuring that person-centred values such as independence, individuality, privacy, choice, partnership, dignity, respect and rights are at the core of service delivery.
Professional Boundaries – We will maintain supportive and empowering boundaries with service users, encouraging autonomy and challenging dependency.
Holistic – We are passionate about taking an approach that acknowledges the importance of the whole person and engaging on a number of different levels including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Sustainability – We are committed to the effective use of financial and environmental resources to support long-term financial and ecological balance through recycling (wherever possible), efficiency savings and ensuring social value.
Quality – We strive for excellence through a continual approach to service evaluation and improvement.
