Behavioural Aspirations

Empowerment Trust’s work is based on four behavioural aspirations. These aspirations are underpinned by values developed and lived since our establishment in New Zealand. The four aspirations connect to our streams of work, and vision and mission – this is what we believe in and how we work!

Healthy Relationships 

We strive to empower our teams and partners to foster and model healthy relationships, honest communication, and empathy.

Safeguarding Culture 

We strive to be courageous, honest and pro-active to ensure the safety of others, whilst protecting the confidentiality of our clients.


We welcome people of any age, culture, religion, race, gender, political belief, sexual orientation, relationship status, ability, or income who share our vision, mission and values.

We are an inclusive team, and recognise Māori as tangata whenua of Aotearoa.


We strive to continually engage in reflective practice to be responsive to the needs of our communities, whilst celebrating each step of the journey.

Let's Kōrero

Let's talk about primary prevention in our whānau, our communities, and Aotearoa. We're looking forward to hearing from you.
