Vision, Mission and Values

In preparing the Hospice for the future we need to agree our Vision, Mission and Values. The vision is where we want to get to (aspiration), the Mission describes what we do (perspiration) and the values are how we work (inspiration) and what hold as important.

This Mission gives greater emphasis on working with others, because as demand increases we will need to enable others to give care and support.

Following meetings with staff, volunteers and users I have put together this draft and would welcome your comments.
