How we work is as important as what we do. Our teams really do believe in, and live our values of belief, respect, ambition and partnership. We treat people as individuals and listen to what they want to achieve. It’s common to hear from people who use our services that their contact with the Together and Reach services as part of Humankind’s new SW region is often the first time that they have felt heard and respected.
Many of our staff know what its like to approach a service like ours for the first time which is why they go the extra mile to ensure that the experience is positive and rewarding. They put people at their ease and explain how we will work in partnership to help someone achieve their recovery goals.
And we do it together – our services are friendly and safe spaces, with a mixture of people who can help; including volunteers, people with their own lived experiences, and other professionals.
‘Making a difference’. It’s often the single biggest driver for working for Humankind in the South West. Our workers get to see people right through their recovery journey and out the other side, so there is a great sense of pride, teamwork and achievement.
You’ll generally see happy faces at our hubs because people really do enjoy their jobs. It’s hard work and no two days are ever the same, but the reward is being a part of someone’s recovery and watching them flourish through the whole journey. When we ask people what they enjoy about working for Humankind SW (formally EDP) we hear ‘making a difference’ over and over again. Knowing that you have supported someone through what is probably the lowest point in their life and being with them for their whole treatment journey is a reward like no other – and you don’t get that continuity in many other health spheres or professions.
