As an organisation we have worked to develop a strong mission statement and objectives that will help us to achieve our vision and meet the needs of the communities we serve. Our mission is as follows:
'Carers Plus Yorkshire enables those we support to be heard, enhance their resilience, improve their wellbeing & make positive changes in their day-to-day lives'
As we translate this statement into objectives, we are committed to ensuring Carers Plus Yorkshire is the ‘go-to’ organisation offering support to Carers & the wider community. We seek to operate through four underpinning objectives:
· To offer independent, high quality, information advice & support through a range of services relevant to our local communities & in the interest of improving personal health & wellbeing
· To proactively represent the voice & needs of the communities we serve; to listen, to respond & thereby influence the commissioning & delivery of services to accurately reflect needs
· To raise awareness of the support available & ensure the localities we serve take full advantage of our services – especially by reaching out to those who are hidden in our communities & need encouragement to access advice & information
· To work in partnership through meaningful collaborations with a wide range of other organisations, maximising the resources & services available across our geographical area.
