C&I has worked closely with current service users and Trust staff to create a set of shared values that make sure people who use the Trust’s services get the best possible chance of a rapid recovery. These values are embedded in the campaign: Changing Lives – will help drive up the standards of care across the Trust. For people who use the C&I‘s services, these values meant that they can be assured that through their journey to recovery they will be guaranteed:

• To receive a warm welcome through their journey to recovery
• That their dignity will always be respected
• That their care will be founded on compassion and kindness
• To receive a positive approach to care as they journey towards recovery
• High Quality Care from a highly trained team of professionals
• That each individual will be part of the wider team in the journey to recovery – 
i.e. ‘no decision about you, without you’.

• for people who use the services of the Trust, AND
