Who we work with and why ...
Our Charter sets out out ethos and beliefs.
One of our core beliefs is inclusiveness and one of our objectives is to facilitate positive and sustainable change.
For that reason we work with a wide variety of people and groups, some of which may have a less than positive public image. Our criterion for working with anyone is that they demonstrate to us that they genuinely want to effect positive change. We believe that working in all circumstances is the only way to help facilitate that change. In fact, we welcome working on such projects as, without them, there will no effective development and improvement.
