Values

Yada’s​ ​work​ ​is​ ​based​ ​on​ ​the​ ​following​ ​values:

Compassion

To​ ​work​ ​with​ ​empathy, ​treating​ ​each​ ​person​ ​as​ ​an​ ​individual,​ ​never​ ​judging​ ​or pursuing​ ​our​ ​own​ ​agenda.


Courage

To​ ​be​ ​bold​ ​with​ ​our​ ​ideas,​ ​to​ ​actively​ ​promote​ ​social​ ​justice​ ​for​ ​all,​ ​oppose​ ​all​ ​discriminatory practice​ ​and​ ​to​ ​challenge​ ​myths​ ​and​ ​stereotypes​ ​that​ ​surround​ ​the​ ​sex​ ​industry.


Congruence

To​ ​work​ ​from​ ​a​ ​place​ ​of​ ​honesty​ ​and​ ​openness,​ ​to​ ​be​ ​accountable​ ​to​ ​one​ ​another​ ​and​ ​promote self-care.


Creativity

To​ ​celebrate​ ​and​ ​use​ ​our​ ​individual​ ​giftings​ ​and​ ​talents,​ ​and​ ​find​ ​new​ ​ways​ ​of​ ​inspiring​ ​ourselves as​ ​a​ ​team​ ​and​ ​our​ ​service​ ​users.


Connection

To​ ​be​ ​a​ ​team,​ ​recognising​ ​the​ ​value​ ​in​ ​collaboration,​ ​sharing​ ​ideas​ ​and​ ​offering​ ​one​ ​another support.​ ​To​ ​work​ ​with​ ​other​ ​agencies​ ​and​ ​organisations,​ ​where​ ​appropriate,​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​a holistic​ ​response​ ​to​ ​the​ ​needs​ ​of​ ​women​ ​in​ ​the​ ​sex​ ​industry.


Yada​ ​has​ ​a​ ​Christian​ ​ethos,​ ​which​ ​inspires​ ​us​ ​to​ ​treat​ ​everyone​ ​that​ ​we​ ​work​ ​with​ ​(including​ ​all staff,​ ​volunteers​ ​and​ ​service​ ​users)​ ​​ ​with​ ​dignity,​ ​respect​ ​and​ ​acceptance.​ ​

We​ ​work​ ​with​ ​any woman​ ​regardless​ ​of​ ​​race,​ ​age,​ ​gender,​ ​sexual​ ​orientation,​ ​background,​ ​ability,​ ​culture​ ​or​ ​religious beliefs.

We​ ​are​ ​members​ ​of​ ​​National​ ​Ugly​ ​Mugs​​ ​service​ ​and​ ​affiliated​ ​to​ ​​Beyond​ ​The​ ​Streets​.
