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.

Social Justice: We are committed to challenging injustice, oppression and social inequality on a range of levels including personal, cultural and institutional.

Equality: We value and take account of differences in our engagement with individuals and community groups and work in a way that promotes, encourages and supports everyone to reach their full potential.

Person-Centred Approach: We are committed to ensuring that person-centred values including independence, individuality, privacy, choice, partnership, dignity, respect and rights are at the core of our service delivery.

Professional Boundaries: We 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 various 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 (where possible), efficiency savings and ensuring social value.

Quality: We strive for excellence through a continuous approach to service evaluation and improvement.
