Cork Alliance Centre
- everybody is an individual, unique in their own way and must be met where they are at, not where we want them to be or where everybody else is.
- our Centre is not so-much about ‘doing things’ for people, its about creating an environment where the person can do it themselves. We focus on a persons willingness, motivation and actions to change and to move on.
- lifestyles, practices and norms cannot be changed over night; a stable, open and supportive approach is needed where behaviours are explored and questioned.
- focusing on the responsibilities that come with rights and entitlements, is a key component within the Centre. Our responsibilities and obligations to one another preserve our individual rights and freedoms and promote our collective values- this is intrinsically linked to dealing with 'offending behaviour’.
- access to services and service providers directly by our service users can difficult and problematic - respect is a two way process.
- single-strategy approaches that focus on just one problem will not be effective because any positive impacts might be threatened due to other risk factors not addressed
- a multiple agency ‘shared-caring’ support network, with open channels of communication is fundamental to ensuring that individuals are given the best opportunities to meet their goals.
