Our Values

Our values are the guiding principles of our organisation. They reflect our beliefs and inform the attitudes and behaviours we expect to see in ourselves and others.

Our values are:

Together Together icon

We achieve success by working together and recognising everyones’ strengths.

We create positive relationships that are supportive, inclusive and honest. We build a sense of team spirit and community. We are individually strong, but even better together.

Respectful iconRespectful

We are self-aware, open minded and value everyones’ opinions.

We pride ourselves on building trust, ensuring privacy and confidentiality. We appreciate people as individuals, showing dignity and respect, always considering their values and beliefs.

Responsible iconResponsible

We take responsibility for ourselves and the world around us.

It’s up to us. We make the best use of the resources available to maximise the impact of our activities. We lead by example, we are accountable, take ownership and have a can do attitude.

Empowering iconEmpowering

We encourage everyone to believe in themselves.

We do this by creative thinking, active listening and valuing each other’s strengths. We encourage others to have a go and take positive risks. We learn from mistakes, and celebrate achievements.

Courageous iconCourageous

We inspire people to be innovative, creative and open to ideas.

We are forward thinking and unafraid of change. Being positive, brave, and continually learning, we encourage confidence and self-belief in ourselves and others.

 

We want our values to be more than just words.

So, we worked together with our staff, volunteers, people we support and their families to turn our shared values into behaviours that we can all recognise. 

In our values booklet, that you can download here, we go in to more detail about our behaviours, and what we can expect to see from everyone.

These behaviours will help us to recognise when someone is truly living by our values, and make sure that everyone within mirus knows what’s expected of them.

Our values were created from input from everyone, they apply to everyone, and they belong to everyone.
