Values

 

Compassion

Our heart is to put ourselves in the shoes of others. We will not be able to fully understand some of the heartache we encounter but we want to listen without judgement, and let our hearts be moved to action through the stories we hear.

Relationship


We aim to forge relationships of trust and facilitate ongoing communication in order to help end the isolation cycle often seen among the most marginalised in our community.

Impartiality

We follow the biblical value of helping the vulnerable - regardless of person - no strings attached.

 

Partnership


We believe our responsibility is to partner with those who come to us for help, and instead of imposing prescriptive answers, to creatively seek solutions together. We aim to increase our effectiveness through partnerships with other agencies, sharing resources and ideas wherever we can.

 
 

Riverview Community Services programs are outworked by a community of volunteers from within Riverview Church whose goal is to promote and facilitate community and friendship with people.
