everybody is an individual, unique in their own way and must be met where they are at, not where we want them to be or where everybody else is.
Centre is not so-much about ‘doing things’ for people, its about
creating an environment where the person can do it themselves. We focus
on a persons willingness, motivation and actions to change and to move
practices and norms cannot be changed over night; a stable, open and
supportive approach is needed where behaviours are explored and
on the responsibilities that come with rights and entitlements, is a
key component within the Centre. Our responsibilities and obligations to
one another preserve our individual rights and freedoms and promote our
collective values- this is intrinsically linked to dealing with
to services and service providers directly by our service users can
difficult and problematic - respect is a two way process.
approaches that focus on just one problem will not be effective because
any positive impacts might be threatened due to other risk factors not
multiple agency ‘shared-caring’ support network, with open channels of
communication is fundamental to ensuring that individuals are given the
best opportunities to meet their goals.
