THE PURPOSE OF CONNECT SUPPORTING RECOVERY
BELIEVE – WHAKAPONO
We passionately believe that everyone who experiences mental health or addiction issues deserves, and is capable of, sustainable recovery with the right support.
Ka noho pūmau tō mātou whakapono kia whai wāhi mō, kia āhei hoki ngā tāngata whaiora katoa te whai tumahu whakauka i roto i te tautoko tika.
DO – MAHIA
We tirelessly assist people to develop real skills and resources to overcome the barriers to their recovery.
We are seeing it, we are living it and we are supporting recovery – relentlessly trusting in the desire, skills and approach of our staff and service users to achieve it together.
We uncompromisingly advocate that everyone deserves respect, hope, equality, and the freedom to take positive control of their own life.
We consistently solve hard problems, meeting the needs of people too often left behind by the system, through innovative and effective service models in community driven mental health and addiction intervention.
Ka whakapau kaha mātou ki te āta hāpai i ngā tāngata whaiora kia whanake ai o rātou pūkenga, rauemi hoki kia eke panuku i tō rātou whakamauītanga. Kei te titiro, kei te mahi, kei te tautoko hoki mātou i te tumahu – ka āwai hoki te tiaki i ngā wawata, pūkenga, aronga o ngā kaimahi, tāngata whaiora rānei, kia kotahi ai te tūtukitanga. Ka tūkaha te whakaaro ka whakawhiwhia te tangata te whakaute, te manawa ora, te noho ōrite, me te mana motuhake kia whakahaere tō rātou ake oranga. Mā te mahi auaha, whakaaweawe hoki i ngā ratonga hapori oranga hinengaro, waranga hoki, ka whakatauria e mātou ngā raruraru, kia tūtuki ai ngā hiahia o ngā tāngata kua whakarerea e te pūnaha.
ASPIRE – WAWATATIA
We will remain firmly in the service of people experiencing mental health or addiction issues, especially those with the greatest need.
We will increasingly find ways to support individuals, whanau and communities access help earlier.
We will create a culture of high performance and effective leadership, thereby ensuring that all staff and service users positively thrive, advance and revel in our environment.
Our intrinsically linked values will guide behaviours, actions and decisions, each one complementing, balancing and uniting the others.
Ka noho tōmau mātou hei kaiwhakahau mo ngā tāngata whaiora me rātou mā e mate waranga ana, kua whakapāwera rānei i ngā taumahatanga. Ka whakatauria mātou he rautaki kia moata mai te whakaaheitanga o ngā tāngata whaiora, ngā whanau, me te hāpori hoki. Ka hangaia e mātou he ahurea mai i te mahi tō tika me te whakamana rangatiratanga. Ma ēnei matāpono, ka taea e ngā kaimahi, tāngata whaiora hoki te puawai, te haere whakamua, me te kite hoki i tēnei taiao mahi. Ka whakahonohono ēnei mātāpono tūturu hei arahi i ngā whanonga, ngā mahi, ngā whakatau hoki. Hei tāpirihanga, ka whārite, ka whakamihia, ka whakakotahi hoki ēnei uara katoa.
Doing the right thing – Kia Pono
Keeping it real – Kia Tika
Whatever it takes – Kia Aroha
Being all you can – Kia Tuwhera
