ABOUT THE MUNGO FOUNDATION
‘To improve and enrich the lives of the most vulnerable people in our communities through our charitable work.’
Our Purpose: To be the best social care provider in Scotland by fulfilling our ‘How can I help’ commitment to personalised service delivery whereby every person, regardless of ability, health, and social status, is enabled to live their best life.
Life: The value and dignity of human life is centre to all we do and to the care and support we provide.Person centred approaches for us means taking an interest in the ‘whole’ life of the ‘whole’ person.
Justice: Respect for dignity of human life cannot be separated from justice. This respect implies a demand for justice, namely recognition of the dignity and rights of all people.We endeavour to reduce stigma and to speak out on issues affecting the care and support of those who are the most vulnerable in our society.
Community: Two dimensions help to articulate the commitment to the value of community which we hold. The first indicates the way in which people live and work together in our services. The second describes the relationships which we develop within the wider geographical local community. The aim of The Mungo Foundation is to form relationships which are conducive to growth and development while recognising the specific rights of the individuals.
