Mission and Vision

To be an entirely dignified and outstanding organisation

The proposed and explicit vision for the organisation continues the spirit of our purpose which is to continue to provide and develop the kind and essential work of Father Nugent.

The vision with regards to ‘outstanding’ attainment has been developed to fit our purpose into the context of a sector that is rigorously regulated by regulators such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC), Ofsted, Local Authorities, the Charities Commission and other quality mark organisations such as the Gold Framework for End of Life Care.

Further, the vision takes into account the attainment of our own chosen quality markers such as Investors in People (IIP), the European Foundation of Quality Management (EFQM) and/or ISO. With regards to the ‘dignified’ element of the vision, this relates back to a value check against our faith-based origins within the Catholic Social Teachings including;

  • Human Dignity
  • Community and Participation
  • Care for Creation
  • Dignity in Work
  • Peace and Reconciliation
  • Solidarity

and long-standing and respected values within our charity.

Therefore our vision acknowledges the standards of a holistic environment which includes the people we support, stakeholders (including staff), regulators and a strong value base.

We are making sure that we are making significant changes to the way we provide and govern our services. We will make sure that, above all, the dignity of the people we serve is paramount. We will ensure that our services are financially sustainable, and outstanding in their delivery.


We are here to continue the kind and essential work started by Father Nugent, helping the people who are most vulnerable in our communities.

Our Mission

Our mission is to care, educate, protect and inspire those in need.

Our Values – iACCORD

In order to fulfil our mission and purpose, we (beneficiaries, staff, volunteers and stakeholders) have agreed on a set of values that are the foundation of our beliefs and our behaviours throughout the organisation.

The definition of the word ‘accord’ signifies an official agreement. The values identified, come together to form this acronym, including the ‘i’ at the front of the acronym stands for humble integrity. This very nicely leads to an indication that ‘one agrees…’
