Integrated health and safety: We are committed to ensuring a healthy, safe and abuse free workplace and care delivery environment.
Mutual respect and fairness: We ensure that our actions, attitudes and communications are free from bias and demonstrate integrity, respect, honesty, openness and accountability. This is reflected in our care delivery and business transactions.
Compliance with professional codes and standards: We adhere to professional standards and codes.
Conflicts of interest: We avoid activities that involve real or perceived conflicts of interest or that could influence (or appear to influence) our ability to make objective workrelated decisions.

Employment practices and human rights: We practice workplace fairness and equity, embrace diversity and value cultural competence.
Access: We ensure that services are provided based on client need and are based on the current goals of the child/youth/families/caregivers, and the needs and abilities of the child/youth and families/caregivers at that particular point in time
Informed choice and empowerment: We strive to ensure that clients or their substitute decision-makers have the information needed to make decisions. We strive to ensure that all members of the Grandview workforce are empowered to make appropriate decisions within their roles.
