Our Mission and Values
Our vision is that everyone in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will have equal access to high quality mental health, drug and alcohol interventions services at the time when it is needed.
We also believe that all services should be co-produced with service users having a say from strategic level right through to ongoing evaluation, and that this involvement should be purposeful and meaningful.
Our values have been chosen for us by those that access or have accessed mental health services. These are called ‘The 5 Values’ and are embedded in all the work that we do. They are:
- Working Together
“Nothing about me without me” (Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS, July 2010). This relates to the concept of shared decision making with service users and carers being experts by their own experience.
We are an independent not for profit organisation that is steered by those with lived experience of mental health and addiction. Our vision is that mental health, drug and alcohol services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are the best they can be for the people who need them, when they need them.
To achieve our vision, our friendly team work alongside people to get their voice heard and respected, and to maximize the influence of their expertise and experience.
