Guiding Principles /Ethos
Hill Street Family Resource Centre is family centred in all its work. It is a centre where management and staff listen to families and respond; where friendship is fostered, diversity respected, equality promoted and active participation valued.
Hill Street Family Resource Centre both welcomes families in and reaches out to offer a quality service in a professional manner. Support and challenge co-exist in all the Centre’s programmes, ensuring parents and children progress, develop and fulfil their life role.
The term “parent” in addition to the actual parent, includes a legal guardian or other primary caregiver such as a grandparent, aunt, uncle or member of the external family.
The Board of Hill Street Family Resource Centre aims to promote Equal Opportunity within the Centre to ensure that no individual member of staff, volunteer, management committee member, or service user is discriminated against. The management committee is aware of the effects of discrimination on members of our society, and we aim to establish and maintain a Community Resource inclusive of all members, and encourage the professional and personal growth of all involved in our activities without prejudice. The management will be guided at all times by the terms defined in the Employment Equality Act 1998, and the Equal Status Act 2000.
