Our values

At FGR Community, we each aim to use our resources efficiently in achieving measurable results, and be fully accountable to supporters, partners and most of all, our local community.

We set high goals and we ask the best of ourselves and our colleagues and are always seeking ways to improve the quality of the work that we do for our beneficiaries.

We aim to work to the highest standards of personal integrity and behaviour, will never knowingly compromise the charities reputation and will always act in the best interest of our beneficiaries.

We are open to new ideas, embrace change and take calculated risks to develop sustainable solutions, for and with our beneficiaries.

As a team we thrive on qualities of mutual respect, values and diversity and apply the same values when working with partners to leverage our brand strength in making a difference for our local community
