Mission, ethos and values

Working together to transform lives

 

Our Mission:

“OHC&AT exists to support, enable and champion the talents, skills and rights of the most complex and vulnerable people in our society in order that we can release their potential, promote their wellbeing and transform their lives.”

Our Ethos:

“As a community of learners, families and colleagues OHC&AT believes that by working collaboratively, with energy and ambition we can always effect positive change. At the core of our ethos is the conviction that there should be no limit placed on what is possible and that everyone has the ability to be the very best they can be.”

Our Values:

As an organisation, we adhere to the seven principles of public life to drive our behaviours and provide a framework for our actions. These are: loyalty, openness, objectivity, selflessness, honesty, integrity and accountability. Within this framework, we have defined our own set of core values and behaviours based around the word ‘create’.
