Values & Behaviours

ACROSS works to a set of clear values and behaviours which underpin all aspects of our work and our objectives. All trustees and staff are required to adhere to these values and demonstrate them throughout their work for the charity. We also share these with our supporters and travellers, and encourage them to adopt this same ethos whenever they travel with or promote ACROSS in any way.
