Strive to achieve excellence and best practiceTreat everyone equally and not impose your beliefs on other people; ‘accept rather than tolerate’ people’s differences.Do what you know is ‘right and just’ even when no one is looking.Listen and try to understand and help each other in ‘big or little’ ways.Understand the person’s situation and their feelings without judgement.

Living our Values

In 2013, with staff wide participation, we identified a representative behaviour against each of our 5 Values, to achieve a common understanding of what each value means for us collectively. We are proud that inherent in these values, staff identified qualities of excellence, best practice, acceptance, honesty, listening, understanding, helping and no judgement.

We live and celebrate our Values at Southcare in everyday conversations, workplace training and inductions and through the annual Southcare Values Awards where staff have the opportunity to nominate other staff who demonstrate outstanding practice of these values.
