Core Values

CKC has also set out a number of values – ‘EDICTS’ – which will guide our progress and decision-making.  We use these values in a practical way to guide staff and management about what we do and how we do it.

  • Education – we believe in the importance of education and learning for everyone and throughout our lives. We apply this in the workplace and through our projects.
  • Disadvantaged groups – we direct our work towards disadvantaged people and communities including ethnic minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
  • Integrity – we are reliable, honest, ethical and committed and deliver high quality and professional outputs for our clients and the community.
  • Co-working – we work with the community, NGOs, government and the private sector as equal partners. We practice dialogical discourse which is based on logic, not power.
  • Trans-disciplinary – we work collaboratively with other disciplines such as social sciences, environmental studies, and economics to achieve holistic and creative solutions for the community.
  • Social responsibility – we want to ensure that the benefits CKC has gained from our education and work experience are shared with young people and with the local and wider community.

As an expression of our values, CKC has prepared the following statements:

  • Health and Safety Policy
  • Green Office Policy
  • Code of Ethics
  • Child Protection Policy
