Guiding Principles / Statement of Values

Tacú Family Resource Centre will ensure certain basic values are manifest in how we work.

  • A commitment to Family Support & Community Development

This will involve us staying true to the principles of equality, social justice, to recognising that the resources of society are distributed unequally to the disadvantage of certain groups, to participation, inclusion, and recognising the capacity of all members of society to work together.

A commitment to these values will also reflect in our approach to our work that will emphasise working with people in situations of greatest disadvantage. This work will be done with people rather than for them and will seek to develop people’s capacity to help themselves.

  • Is accessible and relevant to Individuals, families & Community Groups that we are contracted to work with.
  • Accommodates diversity and needs and aspirations specific to particular groups of people covered under the Equality Legislation.
  • Seeks equality of outcome.
  • Promotes positive action to ensure equality outcomes.
  • Ensures that no one is discriminated against by virtue of their gender, family status, marital status, religion, age, and race, membership of the Traveller community, sexual orientation or disability.
