Burrswood Health & Wellbeing Letter June 2016

Burrswood Health & Wellbeing Vision Document June 2016

Those of us who are not Christians commit ourselves to respecting Burrswood’s vision, mission and way of life. Our Christian faith perspective is offered, but never imposed, either upon our colleagues or upon those who come seeking our help.


Commission, Mission and Vision Statements

 
Our Commission: to heal the sick, comfort the sorrowing and bring faith to the faithless in a way that is meaningful, relevant and inclusive in today’s world
Our Mission: transforming lives through whole person care
Our Vision
The love of Jesus Christ will be cherished at the heart of all we do and encountered by all for whom we care.
We will be known throughout the UK and beyond for offering and delivering a world-leading model of care that is both distinctive and universally respected in giving equal importance to body, mind and spirit.
Our financial viability will be assured, so that our openness and accessibility to all who need the care we offer will never be jeopardised for want of resources.


We endeavour to see that
  • all who stay at Burrswood are held in the love of God
  • all who work at Burrswood, whether staff or volunteers, are valued and respected as children of God.

This requires

  • loyalty to the aims set out in the mission statement
  • disciplines and standards of behaviour that promote good relationships
  • willingness to acknowledge our vulnerability and to learn from each other
  • openness, honesty and integrity of speech and life.


“Christian and non – Christian friends have quizzed me about the healing ‘bit’ of Burrswood and all I can say is what I see with my own eyes at Burrswood is remarkable.  I’ve personally felt the love of God through His tireless servants here and, as it was when Dorothy Kerin was working in the hospital, a huge amount of healing is taking place right under our noses”.
