We know London’s diverse communities. We co-produce our work putting communities at the heart of our projects, giving them ownership and enabling them to take responsibility.
We value the inherent uniqueness of individuals, the different contributions they make, and the richness brought to our work by a diversity of cultures, backgrounds, opinions and ideas. We promote a working environment in which people feel able to express differing views openly; we seek to build consensus and to act with tolerance, fairness and empathy.
We strive to build long term relationships from a base of trust with our team, our trustees, our partners, our members and the communities we work with and in. Partnership, participation and dialogue are core to the way in which we operate.
We strive to be innovative, bringing new thinking and concepts to our work, testing out new practices and taking risks to make a real and lasting difference. We openly acknowledge and learn from our mistakes. We believe in debating issues, embracing our passions and enjoying our work. We appreciate humour, and seek to create an enjoyable and friendly working environment.
