Mission & vision
We aspire to working within a community where all those in need are offered assistance to overcome adversity whilst retaining their dignity.
We recognise the diversity of our community needs and offer practical help across all life stages, through our dedicated team of volunteers and staff.
We are committed to securing long term funding for the ongoing delivery of programs.
We encourage local people to take pride in Doncare as their source of community support and to share our passion for ‘strengthening the local community’ through helping others overcome adversity.
Integrity – we strive to show impartiality, fairness, independence and honesty in everything we do.
Professionalism – we demonstrate high professional standards. We aim to get it right first time and to be courteous in all our dealings. We seek to learn both from the things we do well and the things we do less well.
Openness – we are accountable to our community, our donors and our funding bodies. We aspire to be open and approachable.
Valuing our people – our staff and volunteers are important and we value their skills, knowledge, diversity and enthusiasm. We are committed to providing leadership, keeping people informed, promoting a balance between work and home life, and developing skills.
Partnership – we are committed to working together with associated agencies, community groups, local businesses and government departments.
Inclusiveness – we promote acceptance of diversity and believe in equal access for all.
Non-judgemental – we are an independent agency, not aligned to any government, commercial, institutional, political or religious organisation.
Generosity of spirit – we promote a strong and healthy community where generosity of spirit is encouraged.
