Our Guiding Principles & Values

Our Guiding Principles and Values
YWCA Ireland’s vision is inspired by our Christian faith and as part of a worldwide movement leading change, we seek to empower women in Ireland to be engaged, connected and transformed and to lead and affect change through Christ.

We do so by providing services and outreach through our network of centres, by offering comfortable and secure accommodation, by creating opportunities for genuine fellowship, by facilitating leadership training and by supporting our members in their faith.

Our core values are exemplified in all our activities.  Our faith in Christ inspires us to seek to make a difference in people’s lives and within communities by reaching out and sharing what we believe in, to encourage those who need support.

We seek to serve our members and their communities with selflessness, and we seek to empower our members by encouraging them as individuals in both their faith and their everyday life.

Then by pooling our skills, our expertise and our experience, we are better together. Our commitment to excellence is simply stated: whatever we do, we do to the very best of our ability.
