In Aotearoa New Zealand, childhood is valued and each child's hope and potential are nurtured.
We serve children and young people through recognising the importance of their families and whānau and offering integrated services, within Barnardos and in community partnerships. We do this by providing care, support, education and learning opportunities.
We share a set of core values that define us as an organisation and the way we work.
We demonstrate honesty, fairness, openness and clear boundaries, in all our interactions, behaviours and practices, within the organisation and with our clients, stakeholders and the wider community.
- Respect for others
We acknowledge and respect differences in each other, and provide a safe, supportive environment where all individuals are valued and encouraged to engage in open two-way communication.
We set the standard in service delivery, through a commitment to excellence, innovation, and to ongoing learning and continued improvement.
We stand up for what we believe in, and go the extra distance for children and families so that we can make a positive difference to our society.
