  • Focusing on refugee survivors of torture and trauma as our primary target group.
  • Working with and alongside people and communities, rather than for them.
  • Building and rediscovering peoples’ strengths and resilience.
  • Remaining culturally relevant to service users and communities.
  • Forming partnerships between people, service providers and community.
  • Respecting the importance of place in meeting with people.
  • Responding to peoples’ needs holistically and creatively.
  • Nurturing and growing a gentle and caring environment.
  • Valuing our organisation’s credibility and responsive capability in the areas of primary health care, mental health, education, settlement services and community services.
  • Remaining relevant by employing people from refugee communities and having community people represented on the committee of management.
  • Continually improving the quality of our organisation, our workers’ competencies, and our practice through reflection, learning and evaluation.
