Our Values

We value people

We believe that all people have intrinsic and equal value, and that everyone deserves justice, peace and opportunity. We don’t view people as projects or statistics and we seek to keep relationships at the centre of our work.

We respect difference

We celebrate the richness of diversity in human cultures, traditions and faiths and we look to build on common ground and similarities while not minimising or ignoring differences. We recognise that people’s identities are multi-layered and that labels are often ineffective.

We practice hospitality

We believe that everyone deserves to be welcomed and included, and that nobody should be isolated or lonely. We recognise that people coming together around food or other shared experiences can be transformational for our communities.

We act with integrity

We seek to be honest about what we do and why. Although Bridges was set up by people with a Christian faith, it is not ‘faith-based’ and does not belong to or promote any one faith or culture. It creates spaces where people can discuss their experiences, perspectives and beliefs.

We are reflective

We seek to learn from our mistakes. We are flexible, adapting to opportunities and needs as they arise, and innovating to find creative solutions.
