Everyone has equal access to health care


To deliver the highest possible standard of healthcare to marginalized and vulnerable groups while providing professional support to those working with these groups.

  • Quality: Everyone who accesses our services should expect to be given the highest possible care we can give.
  • Transparency: All our employees, partners, sponsors and service users should always expect us to be honest and open with them.

  • Self-Efficacy: Encourage all who use our services to take care of their health.

  • Inclusion: We ensure that we serve all those that are considered hard to reach.

  • Flexible: Make services fit the person rather than the other way round

We believe that everyone has a right to health care regardless of means, circumstance, race or creed. We try to think outside the box to implement services that adapt to the patient rather than expecting the patient to fit with the system. We do not judge people or blame them for their health condition. We see homelessness as an unhealthy state and do what we can to assist moving out of it. We respect the choices of our patients and work tirelessly to assist them in achieving health and happiness.
