We aim for excellence in service provision and to this end, we integrate the best of current research and knowledge to promote partnership with those people who choose our services, their families and local communities and the statutory authorities.
We promote advocacy and accountability in all areas of our services and support each individual’s dignity and human rights.
Services are delivered through a number of service areas located in each area.
