In2Out Values

Many of our staff members are practising Christians, motivated by their faith and a desire to serve those in need. However, we value working with those of all faiths and none. All our volunteers, staff and trustees are in sympathy with this position and are committed to the values of In2Out as demonstrated in our work. We believe working for In2Out is more than a job. As an organisation we aspire to be non-judgemental and inclusive. With the common objective of serving the young people who choose to work with us, we aim to journey alongside them through the difficulties and struggles they face. Our aspiration is to bring hope into apparently hopeless situations.

Our Values are demonstrated by:

 

Service of young people affected by a broken world; in other words, we are...

  • Working alongside young people and willingly going the 'extra mile'.

  • Acting at all times in keeping with the principle of putting others before ourselves.

  • Playing our part in mending damaged lives.

  • Believing that there is always hope.

 

Commitment to helping each young person re-engage with society; and means...

  • Looking beyond lists of offences to the real person behind them.

  • Seeing each day as a new beginning.

  • Persevering in the face of setbacks.

  • Helping them explore every avenue of opportunity

 

Integrity in all our relationships; and so...

  • Building trust by doing what we say we will do.

  • Relying on each other to do the right thing.

  • Taking personal responsibility in all we do.

  • Working with other partners to achieve a common purpose.

Our desire is to be an influence for good in the damaged lives of each young person we meet. We believe they have the capacity for change, if motivated and supported to do so, and our goal is for them to develop their strengths and realise their potential.

Delivering Excellence

New staff members and volunteers are provided with online induction and safeguarding training, as well as the In2Out Mentoring and Befriending Methodology manual, supported by well-established policies and procedures.

 

Our quarterly training events provide opportunities for personal development as well as building knowledge and capacity to mentor and support young people leaving custody and returning to local communities, especially in light of increasingly complex cases.

Our staff and volunteers also participate in a supervision programme which provides regular sessions for emotional support and helps ensure personal wellbeing.
