Involvement – We involve our members in developing and giving feedback about our activities and every service-user is supported to take part in our programmes, opportunities and activities. Inclusivity – We have high regard for the feelings, wishes and rights of others. Openness – We are committed to a culture of teamwork and cooperation.
