Key Principles and Core Values

The Foundation, its staff and volunteers are focused on the development of children, young people and adults.

In doing this we:

  • Place the needs of our service users first in the development and delivery of our services.
  • Engage service users in shaping services that best meet their needs.
  • Engage business and community based volunteers to assist in the delivery of programmes so that they also have the opportunity to shape their role to make best use of their skills and interests.
  • Ensure all volunteers are appropriately vetted, trained and recognised for their contribution.
  • Measure the effectiveness of provision using a range of soft and hard outcomes.
  • Work to internal and external standards and have acquired Investors in People and ’Matrix’, a unique quality standard for the effective delivery of information, advice and guidance on learning and work.
  • Work in partnership with key stakeholders to maximise the services and opportunities available to service users.
