We want the values and behaviours we have as a charity to become far more apparent as they underpin the work we do.

We have a CODE that helps direct our thinking and guides our approach to care, ensuring our continued success in providing specialist palliative care to the people of east Kent.

What does CODE stand for?

  • Compassionate We treat everyone with compassion and care.
  • Open We communicate openly, honestly and effectively.
  • Dynamic We are dynamic in continuously improving and developing our services.
  • Empowered We empower people to achieve their outcomes.

We link our CODE to all aspects of our work, including the recruitment of our workforce, as this enables us to ensure staff and volunteers demonstrate the values and behaviours we want to promote.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to evidence ways in which they demonstrate our CODE throughout their application, as we are committed to recruiting the best people to deliver and improve our services.
