"Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and can be overcome by the actions of human beings."

-Nelson Mandela

Treat people with dignity and respect, not doing things for people, but rather empowering them to take control of their own lives

Accept and value people for who they are and without passing judgement on their circumstances, lifestyle or beliefs

Operate in God's strength and with His resources, understanding that true, life changing transformation is always more than just changes in physical circumstances

Work with others to help alleviate poverty in the borough of Knowsley and in the surrounding areas
