Our Values

Our practice is rooted in our personal commitment to social justice and equalities:

  • We believe dialogue across boundaries of difference is vital even if, (and especially if), it is difficult or has broken down.
  • We believe that conflict resolution approaches can help apparently fractured communities get on well together.
  • We believe it is important that all voices are represented at the table especially the voices of those who are not usually heard.
  • We believe it is important to champion young people’s potential as community activists, leaders and peer role models, and aim to ensure they have a voice.
  • We believe in being open, direct and honest about what we can and cannot do.
  • We believe the skills and tools of conflict resolution approaches are transferable and aim to build your capacity to do this yourselves.
