Our Mission and Core Values

Mission Statement


We believe in the right of every young adult at Chatsworth Futures to access high quality learning opportunities which will empower and enable them to live happy, safe, healthy, valued and fulfilling adult lives.


We achieve this by providing a safe, caring, challenging and positive learning environment in which the dignity, individual choices and aspirations of each learner are respected and celebrated.

We strive to work collaboratively with learners, their families and colleagues to develop an inclusive, equitable and friendly organisation in which healthy risk taking is encouraged, enjoyable experiences are offered and strong relationships are at the heart of all we do.


We endeavour to nurture independent, empowered and fulfilled individuals who are able to live purposeful, productive and happy lives as they move on from Chatsworth Futures.
