WCDA's Values are aligned with Community Development National Occupational Standards.

These values were developed by Anna Clarke and published by the Federation for Community Development Learning.

This process enables people to:

  • identify their own needs and aspirations
  • take action to exert influence on the decisions which affect their lives
  • improve the quality of their own lives, the communities in the which they live, and societies of which they are a part

This process is underpinned by five key values:

  • Equality & Anti-discrimination
  • Social Justice
  • Collective Action
  • Community Empowerment
  • Working and Learning Together

The outcomes that we are working towards include:

  • Communities will be better able to identify local needs and take action in response to them.
  • People will have increased skills and confidence so that they can continue to identify and respond to local needs in the future.
  • The community will make a difference to the needs it prioritises.
  • People will feel that their area is an even better place to live.
