CBM UK’s work and ethos is based on and inspired by Christian values. We aim to put God’s love into action through our work to build a world where every person with a disability is valued and accepted, can enjoy their human rights and fulfil their potential. We do not evangelise. We seek out and work with the most marginalised in society, irrespective of race, gender, age or religion, recognising the equal worth of every individual.
Many of our supporters, staff and volunteers are inspired by their Christian faith. However, CBM UK recognizes that many people of all faiths and world views share our values – championing inclusion, striving for justice, pursuing excellence, embracing partnership and living with integrity. We welcome anyone who shares these values within our diverse, skilled and committed team and within the CBM family.
