Our Values


OYWT keeps young people as our focus. We believe that all young people have the right to equal opportunity.


Our Value statement provides the philosophical framework for the Trust and is reflected in its policies and procedures:

a. The right of young people to readily access services with a breadth of quality and integration relevant to their needs

b. The right of young people to be involved in the planning of their futures, and to opportunities for full and effective participation in those matters affecting their health and well-being.

c. The right of all individuals to be treated with respect and dignity and to be assured of privacy and confidentiality

d. The value of inter-agency co-operation, networking, and support for those in need

e. The value of a compassionate and responsive community that champions quality services for young people
