Visions and Values

My vision is to deliver qualitative services to build and strengthen an increasing number of children and families. This vision shapes everything that we do, and is reflected in our hallmarks of Quality, Expertise and Innovation.

We have achieved leadership in the voluntary adoption sector, both in quality, endorsed by an Outstanding Ofsted judgement, and also quantity, by growing the number of adoptive families and loving homes for children.

We apply the same vision and values to shape, and grow, our Communities projects providing quality services and successful outcomes for vulnerable women and their children.

I know that our reputation is only as good as our workforce, and place great emphasis on training and developing our staff. This ensures that quality is maintained and is recognised by being awarded a Bronze Standard by Investors In People. I also value the role of volunteers to support and deliver our services.

My goal is to ensure that we can continue to deliver additional and improved services in the future, and therefore we continue to ensure a sound financial platform, to achieve this.

I know that our values have guided us well over the years and will do so for the future so that we can continue to build and strengthen the families we work with.
