Our services are delivered by paid staff and volunteers. We have a firm commitment to volunteering and offer accredited training programmes across the full range of services, including administration functions.

We are committed to delivering needs-led person-focussed services, which incorporate a pro-active approach to empowerment and service user involvement. We work to challenge the discrimination often experienced by marginalised and vulnerable adults, children and families.

We are a progressive organisation, adopting an evidence-based, outcome focussed approach to service delivery and development and we have been at the forefront of developing mentoring approaches, including peer mentoring, in Scotland.
