Vision, mission and values

Lankelly Chase has a vision, shared by many, of a society where everyone has the opportunity to live a rewarding life. We believe that we’ve all got a shared humanity and given the right conditions, everyone can thrive.

As an independent foundation we’re working in partnership with people, across the UK, to change the systems that perpetuate severe and multiple disadvantage. Our mission is to get to a place where people want to, know how to and are free to create systems that are effective in responding to the interlocking nature of severe disadvantages such as homelessness, drug misuse, violence and abuse and mental ill health.

Our values 

Determined: real change takes tenacity, kindness and commitment. We work with humility and the knowledge that there are no simple answers.

Open: we want to build relationships based on shared humanity, kinship and respect. We are always open to new ideas and evidence and we share whatever we learn for the benefit of everyone.

Reflective: we want to find out what really works. We challenge assumptions and we use feedback as a powerful tool for learning.
