Our principles – Enable – Recognise – Connect - Human Rights

Enable

Enable the needs of Albanian children and women to be heard and supported. We recognise the direct and indirect impact of domestic violence and abuse on children and young people and will continue to deliver services and develop interventions to meet their needs.

Recognise

Public awareness and education by raising public awareness around the complex issues arising from domestic violence and abuse, we seek to address the underlying causes through education, prevention and training work.

Connect

Self-help plays a vital role in our work with women and children. Women are supported, as they share their experiences with other service users. Learning from each other as they rediscover their identity and their self-worth. As this develops, self-confidence and self-esteem increases and personal growth and empowerment moving women forward. Empowering themselves to make choices with confidence.

Human rights, equal opportunity and diversity

We are committed to the principles of equal opportunities and to achieving diversity within its capacity as a provider of services. We will actively challenge discrimination both within our own organisation, where it is identified with partners and in the wider community. We recognise domestic violence and abuse as a contravention of the human rights of people within our society.
