New Blog: Putting Our Mission Into Practice

At Lisieux Trust, we always say we place the Residents and Tenants that we support at the heart of all we do. These are not just words, rather we put them into practice daily and as a matter of routine.

We saw yet another practical example of that recently, as one of the Trust family, Lucy, became the latest in a long line of Residents to be involved in the interview process.

Lucy was at Head Office in Erdington to interview prospective candidates for new Support Worker roles, forming a three-person panel along with two of the managers, they all had questions and Lucy was keen to ask hers – and had follow-ups ready, to make sure the process was full of extra tests.

Lucy – who works herself, at Sutton Support Services in the kitchens – said she enjoyed the experience: “I think it is nice to be involved and see if the new people are good. People gave some good answers. It was good to do it.”

At Lisieux Trust, our vision is a society that recognizes people’s abilities first. One where equality, opportunity, and inclusion are prominent and many residents have been involved like Lucy was, as it is vital that the residents and tenants are supported in the best possible way.

All staff know our mission, which is to support learning-disabled and autistic people and empower them with the confidence to choose the life they want to live and make it happen.

We have aims including:

Creativity and boldness and ensuring the support we deliver is personalised while nurturing an environment where people can safely make mistakes.

And a clear set of values including:

Welcoming, Trust, Inspiration, Fun, and choice.

All of this happens naturally, by placing the residents and tenants at the absolute forefront of Trust life. Like involving them in the interview process and having four “steering groups” a year where Residents air their views and can shape real change within the Trust/
