Our values

Established in 1968 under the auspices and support of the Clayton Congregational Church, the fundamental Christian values and ethical principles continue to shine through and govern the activities and decisions of Clayton Church Homes today.

As a not-for-profit provider, the comfort and welfare of our residents is at the heart of everything we do. We will always remain true to the purpose for which we were established with any revenue generated directed to benefit our residents.

Our organisational values were developed by our staff in 2016 and endorsed by the Board of Directors to be formally recognised as part of the Vision, Mission and Guiding Principles of Clayton Church Homes.

Our values are:

  • Respect
  • Communication
  • Team work
  • Trust & Honesty
  • Positive Attitude

The values of our organisation are reflected in the qualities and traits of the staff we employ.
