Values & Cornerstones

Our Values 

Our values underpin all of our work, reflecting our ethos and method of work. 

Promoting positive self-esteem- We fundamentally believe that through developing positive self esteem, young people are more secure, aspire and achieve more, and are far less vulnerable to negative behaviours or experiences. Whether that is engaging in youth offending, disengaging from education or being sexually exploited, by building positive esteem and emotional resilience, we can equip young people to make positive choices for themselves.

Young person centred- offering services and opportunities that reflect the real needs and interests of young people, keeping the individual at the heart of everything we do.

Faith based, not faith biased- Golddigger Trust is a charity motivated by the Christian faith, however all services are offered to young people, regardless of faith or background.

Holistic- Focusing on the whole young person, not just the behaviours they are exhibiting. Our holistic approach allows us to transition from ‘issue to issue’ with the young person, building on a long term relationship- we are interested in who they are, not just what they are doing.
