Trust Links Values
Trust Links follows four core values:
- Inclusive: welcoming and respectful – We value and celebrate the unique and diverse talents, experiences and perspectives of everyone, and treat our participants, partners, donors and each other with sensitivity and respect. At Trust Links we take a welcoming and non-judgemental approach to everything we do.
- Together – We focus on recovery, growth and empowerment, and recognise that everyone has something to contribute. Collaboration through co-production and peer to peer support is at the heart of everything we do.
- Rooted in our community – We are adaptive and continuously improving our high-quality services to respond to local needs. At Trust Links we strive to build a community of support, connecting people and services across South Essex.
- Environment: Nature and nurture – Working with nature benefits our wellbeing, as well as the community we live in. We understand that if we take care of the environment it takes care of us. Our practices and projects reflect our commitment to sustainability, our responsibility to the environment and the transformative power of nature.
Whatever you’re going through, we are here to support you.
