This value represents the purpose of everybody’s role within Timeout. All our people regardless of role all contribute to reshaping a child’s future and it is crucial that we do not lose sight of that.
At Timeout our biggest asset is our people. To ensure that we are as effective as we can be, we need to develop and maintain strong relationships with the children and ourselves. This will not be achieved without gaining trust from each other.
Promote positive and honest relationships through respectful communication.
Communication must be clear, respectfully delivered and solution focused.
At Timeout, we are able to develop and innovate due to our inquisitiveness and daring to change. It is vital that we do not lose sight of this, as it provides the platform for innovation.
As a group of people wanting to change the future of children’s lives, we must hold a passion for learning and see opportunities to learn in everything that we do.
To inspire children through the work that we do we must embed this value into everything that we do. It means to push the boundaries and limitations and not be afraid to make a mistake.
In our work we need to have a leadership mentality and this is gained through working independently and self-belief.
We need to recognise and celebrate achievements in all areas.
Our primary task at Timeout is to ensure that safeguarding is at the core of everything that we do.
