MacKillop Family Services has embarked upon a journey of change through its adoption of the Sanctuary Model. The Sanctuary model is underpinned by the commitments of: Nonviolence, Emotional Intelligence, Social Learning, Open Communication, Social Responsibility, Democracy, Growth and Change
The Sanctuary Model is a blueprint for clinical and organisational change which, at its core, promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma-informed community. A recognition that adversity is pervasive in the experience of human beings forms the basis for the Sanctuary Model’s focus not only on the people who seek services, but equally on the people and systems who provide those services.
To transform lives in a spirit of justice and hope.
Justice: We believe in the right of all people, regardless of belief or culture, to be treated justly and fairly; and
Collaboration: We commit to working in a collaborative spirit through cooperation, coordination, and partnership; and
Compassion: We commit to creating an attitude of openness to others and to their circumstances; and
Respect: We seek to listen and learn from each other and to build relationships with respect.
