Our values

Welcoming and Inclusive

We are welcoming and inclusive. We provide the opportunity for people to socialise, share their experiences and learn from one another. We have an open door policy and all our services are provided free of charge.


We respect each other and celebrate diversity so that everyone can give their best. We recognise the importance of providing a friendly environment where people can feel safe.


We are a faith based charity, we value forgiveness and encourage people to take personal responsibility for the wrong decisions they have made and help them to make positive changes in their lives by providing opportunities, developing their talents, and helping to build their confidence and self-esteem.


We do not judge people on what they have done in their past, we work with all types of offenders and ex-offenders and look to positively influence their future, we never give up on anyone.


We value our volunteers and the contribution they make towards our charity.  We regularly meet with volunteers to ensure they are kept informed and have a say in the future and development of GMCC.
