Our services are designed to prevent problems growing by acting on them early.
We want to be part of a community that works to reduce preventable need and enables ‘readiness’ - so more of our population can thrive.
We work to shift the emphasis of help from crisis response to prevention, capacity building, and resilience. We work with partners to grow individual strengths and assets and mobilise community support networks while using legal advice to build engagement and trust.
This ethos underpins all of our work but some of our programmes are focused entirely on this agenda.
