Social Justice

Access

All people should have fairer access to the economic resources, Junaya and rights essential to improving their quality of life.

Equity

Fairness in the distribution of resources, particularly for those most in need.

Rights

Greater equality of rights should be established and promoted, and there should be improved accountability for decision-makers.

Participation

All people should have the fullest opportunity to genuinely participate in the community and be consulted on decisions which affect their lives and which involve working with families to develop the skills necessary to achieve personal and social change.

Empowerment

The work of JFDS increases people’s control over their lives by encouraging a sense of personal control and personal rights and responsibilities by focusing on the process of building on people’s strengths, competence and resources and providing them with opportunities to enhance their lives.

Inclusiveness

JFDS recognizes that people have a variety of needs arising from different circumstances, including: settlement needs, barriers to social participation and it works towards reducing structural barriers that prevent the participation of socially excluded communities.

Advocacy

Based on the principles of social justice JFDS acts as an agent of social change. To achieve this, JFDS works with government and non-government agencies to increase opportunities for socially excluded people, groups and communities by representing their interests, rights & entitlements in mainstream forums, networks and agencies.

Respect

JFDS recognises its responsibilities to ensure the workplace environment we bring to staff, individuals, groups and communities is safe and respectful. Therefore, JFDS consistently demonstrates respect for each individual, group and community with whom it works.

Duty of Care

Junaya recognises its responsibility to make sure the workplace environment is safe and respectful and that workers and families have different kinds of power in their relationships. Workers often have greater social power and, it is our responsibility to ensure we do not abuse that power or cause harm to those we work with.

Values & Ethics

The promotion and protection of human rights is a core value that informs all aspects of practice.
