Every day we live we get older, it’s just a fact! This adventure is often compared with a journey. Some people come to unfamiliar junctions along that road through changes in their health, bereavement and any number of other situations frequently not foreseen and sometimes unimagined in earlier years. Sometimes the road just gets a little bumpy but enough to take the pleasure away from everyday living. Wherever older people are on that journey our ambition is to be a point of contact to provide or point to whatever assistance is required.
The following diagram sets out what we are about:
• VISION - where we are trying to go – our desired state – ambitious - bigger than we alone can deliver – so future tense
• MISSION - a short memorable statement about knowing why we are doing what we are doing - our core purpose – why we exist - so present tense
• VALUES – three words Connected – Confident – Creative – that say how we are going to go about it - guiding principles of our organisation - how we want you – our staff and volunteers to behave and interact with each other and with others – the quality of our services.
