A core value of the Trust is to recognise we are accountable to a range of stakeholders including our donors and the people with whom we are working to seek social justice. We will hold ourselves accountable by setting high standards for ourselves and by how we assess our impact. We see ourselves as enablers and we appreciate the importance of learning from both successes and challenges – our own and those that we fund. We are committed to being open about how and why we do things and will adhere to the highest possible standards of governance.
