    Our Vision

    Our vision is a world where people who encounter marginalisation or vulnerabilities are treated as equal citizens with respect, dignity and justice.

    We believe people from such communities and their loved ones should be able to access high quality information, care and support. We accept that each individual may have different needs and goals and that these should be defined by the individual. We also accept that these needs and goals may change over time.

    We believe that the success of any service or intervention can only be defined by how well it meets the needs of each individual using it.

    Why we exist

    • WE are experts by experience

    • WE believe multiple and complicated needs can be effectively addressed

    • WE each make our own choices

    • WE support the choice of others

    • WE believe that each choice matters

    • WE believe every journey is unique

    Who Are we

    We are a Not for Profit Company that prides itself on being independent. All of our directors, employees and volunteers have lived experience of social harms and marginalisation. All of those who are part of WE are selected for their personal, professional knowledge and expertise. Each individual involved in the company has their own lived experience of social harms and marginalisation. We believe that each individual experience is equally as valid and valuable as any other. We have an exceptional level of in-depth knowledge and expertise.

    Making an Impact

    We believe that we will make the most lasting and positive impact on the greatest number of lives by changing attitudes, behaviour, decisions, policies and practice. We seek to influence those individuals, organisations and systems that have the biggest impact on the lives of those affected by multiple needs.

    Partnership working

    We pride ourselves on being independent and evidence based. We are committed to partnership working and we work in a collaborative and productive manner with a range of organisations to share experience and knowledge in making the greatest collective difference.

    Engaging with People and Communities

    Marginalised communities are communities that are often stigmatized or confined to the lower or peripheral edge of society. Such groups are often denied involvement in mainstream economic, political, cultural and social activities due to their living conditions, lifestyles or exclusion.

    We clearly see the common cause between different lived experiences of marginalisation. Furthermore, our ability to engage with marginalised communities, of whom we have often been members, allows us to obtain intelligence, gather data and encourage involvement. This is crucial in improving outcomes for all.

We can help you turn a topic on its side and see it from a different angle.
