Guiding Principles

Our Core Values

My Community operates on five core Guiding Principles:


We strongly believe that enthusiasm and excitement are the cornerstone of My Community’s work. We are committed to the community we serve and the work we do.


We work with all volunteers regardless of race, age, culture, gender identity and religious affiliation. The organisation strives to be a safe and inclusive space for all staff and volunteers. We do not tolerate any form of bullying and harassment within the organisation.


My Community adopts a collaborative and community-centred approach to the work we do. We are people-centric team players.


As part of our community-centred approach in running the organisation, we are committed to ensuring that community heritage is accessible to all. This means ensuring that our museum spaces, activities and events are open to one and all at no cost where possible.


We ensure our programmes are sustainable by focusing on people and planning for the long-term. This means that we strive to form and maintain good relationships with the community, volunteers, donors and our community partners.
