Our vision, mission and values
In order to help make this a reality we have created a vision and mission for the organisation which sets out what we would like to see and how we are going to help make this happen.
To support this we have also identified the values that are important to us, that will guide us in what we do and how we behave with each other and our stakeholders. We call this our Vision, Mission, Values & Behaviours.
We have created these statements and guidelines so that we know what our aims and objectives are. They should also help to ensure that our working lives are as enjoyable and as fulfilled as possible, giving us pride in ourselves and in Jewish Care.
Jewish Care's vision is of a society where people support and care about one another and are able to participate fully in their community.
Jewish Care will enable Jewish people to participate and live in their community, by delivering care and support that recognises and respects their Jewish values.
To fulfil our vision and mission, Jewish Care will be guided by the Jewish values of warmth, kindness, dignity, honesty and respect throughout all of its services, and will ensure:
Service delivery - Provide the highest quality social care, health and support services.
Jewish ethos - Promote Jewish customs and traditions and be proactive in providing opportunities for people to celebrate and observe the Jewish way of life.
Values - Respect people’s differences and strive to meet individual needs by promoting independence, choice, wellbeing and dignity.
People - Empower clients, staff and volunteers; listen to them, act on their feedback and support and encourage their personal and professional development.
Finances - Maximise our efficiency and effectiveness to make the greatest impact possible and make best use of our financial resources.
Partnership - Work to support isolated and vulnerable Jewish people in partnership with other organisations where appropriate.
Our five values are at the heart of the way we work. By working together in this way, staff should be able to enjoy what they do and be proud of what they offer our clients. They are:
We are ambitious, professional and passionate about offering high quality services delivered with dedication and sensitivity
Working together, we actively encourage people to "go for it" and live meaningful lives
We are innovative, adaptable, welcome new ideas and believe in finding solutions that work for each individual
Everyone involved with Jewish Care is important and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect
We treat people fairly and are accountable for what we do and how we do it
