People matter

We want CHAS to be one of the best places to work. That’s why we create a working environment where our employees can thrive through positive and fulfilling experiences. We understand that life has its ups and downs and if we are to provide unwavering support for our children and families, we need to do this for every one of our people too. We do this by having regular check-ins and offering a range of Wellbeing support to help our people be at their best.

Guided by values

Our values guide our behaviours and how we interact with each other and with children and families, partners, supporters and anyone else who might engage with us.

They are the principles and behaviours to which we hold ourselves accountable and remind us of what we are willing to uphold and not willing to compromise.
