A Way Out, as an organisation has been taking time to reflect and re-evaluate who we are, what we do, and why we are here. These questions are essential to be asked to ensure we are fit for purpose and meeting the needs of the clients and the people we serve.
Over the last 12 months, the review stretched across the organisation including management, staff, trustees, volunteers, clients, and external partners. Together we agreed our vision that everyone should be able to live the life they choose without experiencing or fearing abuse, harm and exploitation.
Our mission is to prevent abuse, harm and exploitation by empowering women, families, and young people to have control over their lives and by tackling the injustice and inequality that they experience.
A Way Out want to uphold compassion, with a non-judgmental trauma informed approach. We want to be connecting, creating opportunities for our clients to access support through proactive outreach and by building trusting relationships. We want to be caring, providing support when needed.
A Way Out want to provide our clients with choice to be able to make informed decisions and opportunities for them to achieve their potential.
We hope to be a community building positive relationships by providing support at times of need. We want to create a lasting change, addressing the causes of injustice and inequality, and wider stigma and discrimination, by ensuring that learning from lived experience is used to change the language, behaviour and views, and process and systems, of other individuals and organisations.
We uphold the Christian values of love, truth and justice that underpin everything we do to support those with a Christian faith, another faith or no faith.
