Our Values

Our values have been developed in consultation with our clients and staff and are embedded into everything we do.

We are shaped by the needs and voices of survivors

  • We believe what survivors tell us and are non-judgmental in our approach.
  • We recognise survival strategies and validate feelings whatever they are.
  • We empower and enable survivors to regain control and choices.
  • We hear and respond to survivor voices when providing and developing our          services.

We stand for justice and equality

  • We promote and uphold the rights and needs of survivors.
  • We provide a service that is anti-oppressive and responds to survivors as              individuals.
  • We recognise it is an individual’s decision whether to report.
  • We work positively to ensure our services are accessible and appropriate to         those who need them.

We act on our belief that change is possible

  • We actively challenge injustice and dispel myths surrounding sexual                        violence.
  • We amplify the voices of survivors to ensure they are heard.
  • We work to promote and protect survivor’s rights.
  • We work from a feminist and human rights framework to promote positive            change.

We hold ourselves to the highest professional and ethical standards
