Our Vision

is of a caring and connected community where everyone contributes and enjoys life to the full.

Our Mission

ARK Eastleigh serves the vulnerable and excluded in our community through practical acts of kindness, befriending and informal advocacy. We work in partnership with other local organisations to reduce social isolation and empower families and individuals to overcome the challenges they face.

Our Values

Faith

  • Our Christian faith inspires and directs all we do

  • We build others’ faith in us by;

    • communicating regularly, clearly and honestly;

    • listening to and learning from feedback ;

    • managing our resources wisely.

Love

  • We make every effort to build healthy relationships with clients, partner organisations, supporters, volunteers and employees realising that our actions speak louder than our words.

  • We are in no position to judge those we serve and respond compassionately to all those seeking help.

  • We build relationships with patience, persistence, gentleness and kindness.

  • We recognise that every individual is unique and significant and has something to contribute.

Hope
