C&I has worked closely with current service users and Trust staff to create a set of shared values that make sure people who use the Trust's services get the best possible chance of a rapid recovery. These values are embedded in the campaign: Changing Lives - will help drive up the standards of care across the Trust. For people who use the C&I's services, these values meant that they can be assured that through their journey to recovery they will be guaranteed:

• To receive a warm welcome through their journey to recovery
• That their dignity will always be respected
• That their care will be founded on compassion and kindness
• To receive a positive approach to care as they journey towards recovery
• High Quality Care from a highly trained team of professionals
• That each individual will be part of the wider team in the journey to recovery -
i.e. 'no decision about you, without you'.

C&I staff are required to reflect these values throughout their service at the Trust both:
• for people who use the services of the Trust, AND
• within their immediate teams and across the wider business of C&I.

As an applicant for this role, you are urged to demonstrate within your supporting statement a combination of evidence that reflects your competence to meet the job specification and provide examples of how C&I values are an integral part of the way you have and will continue to deliver service.
