Our vision

Our vision is to improve the mental, physical and social wellbeing of the people in our communities.

We will do this by:

  • Working with and advocating for the local population
  • Refocusing our services towards prevention and early intervention
  • Continuous improvement of our services
  • Locating services as close to peoples’ homes as we can
  • Developing a confident and skilled workforce
  • Ensuring excellent and sustainable services

Our values

Our values are a series of behaviours that everyone at the Trust is expected to live and breathe.

We are proud to live our values each and every day. They outline how we will act to ensure we provide the very best care to the people we support.

Our values are:

  • Working together for our service users
  • Respect and kindness
  • Everyone counts
  • Commitment to quality
  • Improving lives

In 2021 we worked with our staff to review and relaunch our values to ensure they reflected the behaviours we expect from everyone at Team SHSC.

Our strategic direction

Our strategic direction sets out where we aim to be as an organisation by 2025 and what we need to do to get there, in an increasingly changing world and NHS environment.

“By 2025 we want to be ‘the best we can be’, delivering accessible and inclusive person-centred mental health, learning disability and social care services”

Our strategic direction

Our strategic aims

As a result of the work we have undertaken to review our strategic direction with our staff, leadership group, Joint Consultative Forum, Council of Governors, Board, partners and people who use services, we have revised our strategic aims to formally acknowledge the importance of addressing inclusion for our staff and people who use our services, as follows:

  • Deliver outstanding care
  • Create a great place to work
  • Effective use of resources
  • Ensure our services are inclusive
