The Core Values are principles that guide Threshold DAS internal conduct and its relationship with external agencies. These include:
Threshold DAS is Pro-Women and not Anti-Men
Threshold DAS has an honest interest in listening to and learning from our service users. This ensures that the relationships between service users and staff are meaningful and our services are effective and successful.
The key to our success is “Real Engagement” with our service users and a passion for putting their interests first at all times, without acceptation.
Threshold DAS has developed a large range of services to enable service users to achieve Safety, Support, Advocacy, Opportunities and ownership of their lives and to end the cycle of Domestic Abuse. These services range from initial contact and advice, refuge accommodation, through early intervention services and mediation, to education, training, volunteering and placement opportunities, which together provide a series of pathways to independent living.
All Threshold DAS Staff are in constant consultation with our service users and Service User’s participation is at the heart of all of our services.
Threshold DAS encourages positive participation of service users in the services that they receive. For this reason, service user forums are set up to allow service users and ex-service users to meet and discuss the services that they are receiving as well as to offer informal and peer support to each other.
We Don’t Give Up on Service Users – we find solutions were there are none
