The team at Prevention United believe it isn’t just what you do, but how you do it that matters.
Workplace culture matters. Values matter. At Prevention United we have chosen values that highlight what we believe in and the standards we want to hold ourselves to.
Humour over pride
We will never take ourselves too seriously, although we do serious work.
Teamwork over egotists
We will work cooperatively and will not tolerate selfishness, disrespect or deceit.
Solutions over opinions
We will work towards finding the right answer, not being right.
Eclecticism over silos
We will use an inclusive, multi-disciplinary, multi-sector approach that brings together diverse people, skills and perspectives. Prevention is everyone’s business!
Responsibility over blame
We will promote individual and collective responsibility without privileging one or the other.
Justice over privilege
We believe in the fair and equitable distribution of power and resources, and in ensuring that people most in need get the greatest assistance.
