Our WCDA's Values are aligned with Community Development National Occupational Standards. These values were developed by Anna Clarke and published by the Federation for Community Development Learning. This process enables people to: identify their own needs and aspirations take action to exert influence on the decisions which affect their lives improve the quality of their own lives, the communities in the which they live, and societies of which they are a part This process is underpinned by five key values: Equality & Anti-discrimination Social Justice Collective Action Community Empowerment Working and Listening Together The outcomes that we are working towards include: Communities will be better able to identify local needs and take action in response to them. People will have increased skills and confidence so that they can continue to identify and respond to local needs in the future. The community will make a difference to the needs it prioritises. People will feel that their area is an even better place to live.
