Service above self
Shed the Light exists to serve others, particularly children and young people. Our concern is for the welfare of others.
Respect for all
We treat all people with respect and sensitivity, recognising the importance of diversity.
In all our actions we strive to develop people’s capacity and confidence to increase the strength of individuals and communities.
Shed the Light is accountable for its actions and decisions, primarily to the community it serves, and also to its funding agencies, government, staff and volunteers, members, partner organisations, and the general public.
As visionaries, we not only see the reality of the world as it is, but also envision the world as it could be.
Truthfulness and integrity
We act with honesty, openness and integrity, not compromising the truth.
Except as needed to protect human rights, our basic financial information, governance structure, activities, and staff and personnel lists shall be open and accessible to public scrutiny.
