Vision, mission & values

What makes Welsh Women’s Aid an exciting, energetic and enjoyable place to work? It’s the people who work here. Throughout the organisation there is a passion and drive that is palpable. Our relentless determination to succeed unites us and creates a unique working culture.

Core to this culture are our vision, mission and values:

Vision

A world in which women and children live free from actual or threatened domestic abuse and all forms of violence against women.

Mission

To prevent domestic abuse and violence against women and ensure high-quality services for survivors that are needs-led, gender-responsive and holistic.

Values

The values and principles that inform our work are founded on gender equality, human rights and non-discrimination:

Feminism and equality: We work within a feminist ethos and as part of the movement for social justice, which advocates for and proactively attains women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality.

Empowerment: We advocate a rights-based approach and create a context in which women and children can achieve self-determination and empowerment, so they can flourish and reach their full potential.

Collaboration: We are committed to working together with survivors, our membership and with external partners, sharing knowledge and expertise to maximise every opportunity to make progress towards our vision.

Integrity: We keep survivors voices at the centre of our work, and hold ourselves individually and collectively accountable for our actions and act according to our beliefs and values at all times.

Excellence: Our services evolve in response to emerging needs, changing populations and new/revised ways of thinking about violence against women and children, and we are committed to ensuring we deliver the best that we can possibly achieve.
