Our values


We always treat each other with respect and fairness while recognising and accepting the differences, wishes, rights, feelings and value of others.


We always act professionally and can be trusted implicitly because honesty, transparency and strong ethical principles underpin who we are and everything we do.


We are reliable, always performing our roles safely, effectively and efficiently, while taking responsibility for our actions and decisions.


We always put the needs of the community and our team first, and have the courage not only to deal with serious situations, but to stand up for others and to challenge wrongdoing.


We treat everyone we meet with equity, understanding and kindness. We appreciate that others may be dealing with issues we are not aware of and that this will change their behaviour.
