Vision Statement

Part One – For Us

We will create a space that welcomes each of us as individuals both in and beyond our experience of abuse.

One in Four will be: -

A space to be together with awareness, acceptance, respect and recognition

A place where truth, trust and integrity are a reality

An undemanding space free of labels where we are not defined merely as victims, survivors or statistics

A place in and of life

A place of freedom where it's OK not to be OK

Part Two – For and beyond Ourselves.

One in Four will offer an opportunity to each individual to take part in further work. This offer will be made without demand or expectation…each person must have the freedom to fulfil their own needs both inside and beyond themselves. We recognise that for some there will be a need to look beyond personal issues. Part two of our vision will offer this opportunity: -

Together we will both learn and facilitate the learning of others. Through this learning we will secure a future where:

No abused child will ever be denied

The cold, hard truth of abuse is exposed

We recognise that abuse happens to people and it is the person that matters. Any social legal, or medical process must embrace rather than disempower that person

The reality of abuse is every person's responsibility.

We can and will achieve these things together.
